    A career pathway is a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses starting in the ninth or tenth grade and lead to an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, possible post-secondary credit, and assist students in their transition to the workforce, military, or post-secondary education. It allows students an educational plan in high school that prepars 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. 

    CTAE CONCENTRATOR: A concentrator is defined as a student who takes at least two sequenced CTAE courses in a specific program area during their high school career.

    CTAE PATHWAY COMPLETER: A pathway completer is a student who earned 1 unit of credit per course for the following: an introductory course plus two sequential courses within a state recognized Georgia CTAE Pathway. The 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.
