Welcome to the CTE Department
Career Technical Education classes give students a chance to explore specific career pathways while discovering the real-world application of the knowledge and skills learned in core subjects. Students must complete 10 credits (1 year) of Career Technical Education as a graduation requirement at Aragon. In CTE classes, students use math to design buildings, create digital games, and prepare meals; they use reading and writing skills to critique restaurants, evaluate architectural styles, and develop storylines for student-produced videos. While some of our CTE programs prepare students for entry level employment, most students complete CTE courses with an understanding of the next steps they need to take on their career paths, whether it is continuing on to college for a degree or job-related certificate or applying to local apprenticeship programs where they can master a craft as they earn a living. With a varied set of program offerings, CTE classes prepare students to be successful in life after high school.
