CTAE MS and HS Pathways
A career pathway is a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses starting in the ninth or tenth grade, leading to an industry-recognized certificate, licensure, and possible post-secondary credit, and assists students in their transition to the workforce, military, or post-secondary education. Enrolling a career pathway allows students an educational plan in high school that prepares students for future careers, jobs, or occupations. Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) provides students with the opportunity to select at least three sequenced courses in a career pathway. Selection of a pathway is based on self-awareness and the investigation of occupations plus related educational levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still require education beyond high school.
