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, leads 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 in 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.
Senior students are eligible to earn a medallion at graduation in the following areas: advanced academic, fine arts, foreign language, and/or career tech. To earn a medallion, students must be a member of an honor society and have completed at least 3 courses within their area of completion, as well as additional requirements here. To qualify, students must complete a Pathway Verification Form and turn it into their honor society sponsor by February 17th, 2022. If a student qualifies for a medallion in multiple areas, they will receive a “pin” for each additional pathway. Students will only receive 1 medallion.
