Today’s cutting-edge, rigorous, and relevant Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares students for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers. CTE uses the Linked Learning approach to engage every student in high- quality and relevant education Pathway. In these Pathways, students have some options to take credit-bearing college-level courses that are university admissible upon graduation from high school.


Linked Learning is an amazing opportunity for students to have a quality learning experience that is integrated with career awareness, academics, exploration, and experiential opportunities. Linked Learning integrates four (4) core components, or pillars, that are proven to increase student outcomes.
