CTE Pathways


CTE courses are sequenced according to knowledge and skills. Students are encouraged to complete the courses in sequence, to progress from introductory to capstone curriculum. Each course is 155 hours long. A student with 300 hours of in-sequence coursework is a pathway completer.

A Pathway can have an introductory course, should have a concentrator and must have a capstone.

Introductory Courses

A CTE entry-level pathway that contains concepts and skills required to build foundational and general knowledge.

Concentrator Courses

A CTE pathway course beyond the introductory level that is intended to provide more in-depth instruction and exploration of a specific career pathway.

Capstone Courses

The final course in a pathway that provides a rigorous and intensive culmination of a course of study.
