Within the classroom environment, students are able to compete in a number of professional competitions with students and architects around the world. Hands-on, project-based learning is the instructional focus, leveraging natural competition with real world problems.
Students in the Architecture pathway are able to join and compete with SkillsUSA. Throughout the course of the year, students may attend the Champion's Rally, Fall Leadership Conference, Elevate Conference, Regional Competitions, and the State Leadership and Skills Conference.
Students are also eligible to apply for the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). NTHS is the premier honor society for Career and Technical Education students, drawing on their experiences in the CTAE classroom.
