Career and Technical Education (CTE) represents one of the most successful educational models used to ensure students graduate college and career ready.
In the 21st century, New York City CTE high schools are outperforming traditional academic schools in terms of high school graduation rates, and providing a large number of student work -based learning opportunities like internships. High school students in CTE programs complete the same courses as students in regular high schools (math, science, foreign language, etc) while also taking additional technical courses, some of which provide college credit or lead to industry-recognized credentials.
No teenager should be expected to make a final decision about their future job. CTE allows students to begin learning about career opportunities so they can make informed decisions later in life.
