What do CTE programs offer high school students?

Students enrolled in a CTE program meet Regents diploma requirements in addition to a CTE sequence. CTE programs offer NYC public school students engaging opportunities to pursue industry-recognized credentials, participate in job shadowing and paid internships, and receive mentoring from professionals—critical experiences to prepare young people for entry to postsecondary education, training, and employment.
