What is CTE?

Career and Technical Education (CTE) gives high school students the chance to get a head start on preparing for college and careers.
In CTE programs, you will learn how core subjects like math, science and technical writing are used in careers. 

CTE:

  • Includes high schools, career centers, community and technical colleges, four-year universities and more 
  • Fulfills employer needs that are high (skill, wage, demand) 
  • Integrates academics in a rigorous and relevant curriculum 
  • Features high school and postsecondary partnerships, enabling clear pathways to certifications and degrees. 
  • Prepares students to be college and career-ready by providing core academic skills, employability skills and technical, job-specific skills. 
  • Educates students for a range of career options through 16 Career Clusters and 79+ pathways. 


Currently Northwest ISD’s CTE program has 4,470 students enrolled in 14 different career clusters at the high school level and occupies 5,262 seats daily. Just over 70% of high school students are currently taking at least one CTE course. 
This enrollment includes a total of eight career academies. Overall, CTE program has increased enrollment by 42% over the last five years.
