CTE in Twenty Seconds

  • A generation ago, we knew it as vocational education or skilled trades training

  • Finances and logistics have removed most local schools’ ability to offer it; CTE fills that void

  • It’s offered to juniors and seniors at high schools in Beaverton, Clare, Farwell, Gladwin and Harrison

  • Students get an opportunity to explore many diverse career fields

  • Students learn valuable professional and personal skills that help prepare them for life after high school, whether it’s in college, the workforce or both
