Theory of Action

Career and Technical education courses introduce students to a variety of high demand and high skill career pathways and connect the student's future career goals to innovative learning environments.  With an emphasis on real world, real life skills, Career and Technical Education takes students where they need to go to be prepared for their future. Through integrating and applying 21st century skills, technical knowledge, and core academic learnings,  our goal is that every student will graduate from EHS prepared for the job market and postsecondary education. Whether students plan to go to work straight out of high school or eventually earn a PhD, whether they have a set clear career goal or just want to learn something practical and new, all students benefit from participating in CTE courses and programs of study.
