Mission Statement: The purpose of the CTAE Program is to provide an on-going partnership between education and business/industry to prepare the students of Forsyth County Schools with the skills necessary to meet world-class standards, successfully continue life-long learning and enter the marketplace as productive citizens.
CTAE provides "seamless" instruction that connects academic and technical skills to future educational and career opportunities. Options within the program offer curriculum and instruction linked to industry standards in labs featuring the latest technology. In order to meet and maintain industry standards, most of the programs complete and maintain Industry Certification. The CTAE program is integrated with all of the secondary courses of study through career pathways.
After leaving high school, students may continue future training at colleges, universities and technical schools. In addition, several of the CTAE courses are articulated with post-secondary technical colleges. While pursuing additional educational training, students may use the Hope Scholarship and the Hope Grant. Furthermore, certificate programs in high tech areas such as CISCO and A+ Certification accelerate job opportunities for graduates.
Georgia's College and Career Ready Clusters/Pathways
"Making Education Work for All Georgians"
Georgia's Career Cluster/Pathways provide a structure for organizing and delivering quality Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs. Career Clusters serve as framework to provide essential knowledge and skills for the students' defined career pathways. Career Clusters serve as a tool for a seamless educational system that:
Career Pathways are sub-groupings of occupations and career specialties used as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction. They focus on easing and facilitating student transition from high school to work, technical college, or a traditional college. The Career Pathways concept provides focus and a personal plan for EVERY student that involves parents, counselors and teachers in the process. Provisions for work-based learning experiences are easily put in place as sites for apprenticeships, co-ops, job shadowing, internships, and mentoring are articulated with appropriate Career Pathways.
The commitment to complete the Career Pathways requirements is never binding and can always be changed. The goal is not to require high school students to choose a major course of study as a college student would, but to begin to think, to study, to plan, and to set goals for the future and the career that awaits.
