Career and Technical Education (CTE)
What is Career education?
Career and technical education (CTE) programs help you learn the skills that will prepare you for a job. CTE programs consist of three or more courses that will help you earn an industry credential and prepare you to enter the workforce. High school students can take a wide range of CTE classes in everything from Agricultural Science to Marketing Media Communications. Whether you are attending a traditional high school or are enrolled in a career and technical education center, CTE programs makes the connection between your academic studies and career aspirations clear. Rhode Island students are eligible to enroll in any CTE program across the state for free, even if it exists outside of your district.
