    Career Pathways are state-approved career enhancement programs defined as a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses starting in the ninth grade and leading to an associate degree, and/or an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or a baccalaureate degree and beyond. Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) provides students with the opportunity to select at least three sequenced courses in a career pathway.

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

    PATHWAY COMPLETER: A pathway completer is a concentrator who completes the requirements for the Georgia Milestones Assessment System and also completes the requirements for CTAE pathway concentrators. 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.

    Implementation of career pathways is a collaborative effort between the Forsyth County School District, the Georgia Department of Education, the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia.
