February is National CTE (Career and Technical Education) Month! Over the next 4 weeks, CV-TEC will be posting items on a variety of our 25 Career and Technical Education Programs – everything from Animal Science to Welding.

The technical, academic and employability skills that students gain in CTE programs, through CTE courses, work-based learning, career and technical student organizations and dual/concurrent enrollment, are essential for college and career success.

Did you know:

  • 80 percent of students taking a college prep academic curriculum with rigorous CTE meet college and career readiness goals, compared to only 63 percent of students taking the same academic core who did not experience rigorous CTE.
  • Students attending CTE high schools demonstrate higher rates of on-time graduation and credit accumulation and a greater likelihood of successfully finishing a college prep math sequence.
  • CTE students are significantly more likely to report developing problem-solving, project completion, research, work-related, communication, time manage­ment and critical-thinking skills during high school.

CV-TEC’s CTE Programs are open to high school and adult students, and financial aid is available for adult students.
