What is Career Technical Education?

Career Technical Education (CTE) is a program for high school students in grades 9-12 to help prepare them for the future. Whether you choose to go to college or not, the ECOT CTE Academy provides students with various pathways that pave the way for rewarding career opportunities. CTE courses are designed to engage students for relevant, real-world learning experiences. By the time a student graduates from high school, it is possible to have earned college credit towards a degree, certifications for various industries, and on-the-job training.

Why is Career Technical Education important?

ECOT is committed to helping each of our graduates work towards a meaningful, fulfilling career. We know that employers are searching for skilled employees who are ready to enter the job force. College is not for everyone, nor is it a possibility for everyone. Career Technical Education courses give students the skills they need to begin a career directly after graduating from high school. If students are college bound, many courses can be taken in high school for college credit. ECOT is passionate about ensuring each student graduates from high school, but beyond graduation, we care deeply about the future of each of our students. CTE is the bridge between graduation and career readiness.

Centers Across The State

Perhaps there is a program that you are interested in, and the pathway is not offered at ECOT.

If so, ECOT students are eligible to apply to career centers in the home or nearby district. Please note that students must meet qualifications to be accepted, and there are a limited numbers of seats in each pathway, so it is first come, first serve. It is possible that a student would be placed on a wait list.

The ideal time to apply to Career Centers for admission for Junior year is the fall of Sophomore year. Please check your local Career Center website for details on when the application process opens for the next school year. Many Career Centers offer students the opportunity to apply online. If accepted, you will be notified directly from the Career Center.
