CTECS offers high school students over 30 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs! All programs integrate 21st-century employability skills required by business and industry.
Ninth-grade students participate in all of the technical programs offered at their technical high school through the Exploratory Program. This experience allows students to engage in the various career path opportunities before choosing one that will set the framework for their education in grades 10-12.
Graduates earn a Connecticut high school diploma, CTE certificate in their field of study and multiple stackable credentials giving them the “competitive edge.” These credentials include but are not limited to state occupational licensure, national technical skill competency certifications and industry-recognized credentialing.
