No matter what you want to be when you grow up…a computer engineer or a software developer, a marketing professional or artistic designer…someone who loves working with their hands or creating business plans and technical schematics with your mind…CTE is for you.


Students who study career and technical education (CTE) complete the same core academic subjects (Math, English, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Language, etc) as typical high school students, but also take additional technical courses that give them a cutting edge advantage. CTE Architecture students learn design principles in the classroom, and also intern at companies where they learn from the experts. CTE Automotive students study engineering mechanics, and also compete in national competitions on diagnostics. To learn more about the nine different industries, 129 high schools, and 318 programs covered by CTE in New York City, click on the category to the left that interests you.
