Career and Technical Education (CTE) Logo
CHCCS offers a comprehensive Career and Technical Education (CTE) program for students in middle and high schools. A variety of high school courses are offered in thirteen career clusters, including business, information technology, career development, marketing, and health sciences education to name a few. Our middle schools offer courses in Business, Family & Consumer Sciences, and Technology Education. We feel that every scholar needs a skill, and CTE provides the type of mastery that prepares students for successful careers in a global economy.
