Career Technical Education

About CTE

Career Technical Education (CTE) is a program of study that involves a multiyear sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.
 
While in high school, students have the opportunity to acquire technical skills training in the career they may be interested in by focusing on any of our career pathways at either Rocklin or Whitney high schools. Students will learn valuable technical skills and soft skills making them on their way to be career ready .

What is a CTE Pathway?

WHAT IS A CTE PATHWAY?
  • A Pathway is a sequence of courses within your area of interest.
  • A Pathway will connect your career interests from high school to college and/or career.
  • A Pathway is your educational road map guiding you to the high school courses and post-secondary options most relevant to your chosen career destination.
  • A Pathway will help you acquire the depth of knowledge and skill linked with specific post-secondary programs that will lead to a certificate or degree and/or career.
CTE PATHWAY GOALS:
  • Learn real-world 21st century skills that make students career and college ready.
  • Courses meet a-g requirements for entrance into the UC college system.
  • Students learn skills like: critical thinking; communication; teamwork; leadership; research tools; creativity; and innovation.
  • Students who complete rigorous academic core with a career concentration are more likely to pursue postsecondary education; have a higher GPA in college; and are less likely to drop out the first year of college.
  • CTE courses increase engagement in school by involving students as decision-makers and “owners” of their education process.
