Our CTE Pathways
Pathways has launched its first CTE Pathways in Information Technology: Help Desk, Media Arts, and Game Design. Our local Community Colleges also offer a range of other CTE Pathways and certifications that extend the learning students will experience in these pathways (see sidebar for Community College links).  Our CTE classes are all delivered online.  Contact your IST to register for any of these classes. 
Completing all classes in one of the CTE pathways, including the Leadership independent study course, will result in a Certificate of Completion, opportunity to earn the Google G:Suite Certification, and will prepare you for further study and/or career opportunities in any field.
Are you Interested in CTE?
New or existing students may contact Brenda Peterson ( for support with course selection, credit transfers, certificates of completion, or any other CTE-related questions.

What is CTE?

Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. CTE prepares students for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing them with hands-on experiences and projects. There are 15 different industry pathways within CTE including: hospitality and Tourism, Business and Finance, Health Sciences and Medical Technology and Information Technology.


Why CTE?

  • 53% of jobs in the US require more training than a High School Diploma but less than a Bachelor’s Degree.
  • CTE Programs prepare students for current and emerging jobs.
  • CTE Programs prepare students for high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers.
  • CTE Programs prepare students with the technical and soft skills to be successful in college and careers.
