Career Technical Education (CTE) at SCVi

At SCVi, we offer Career Technical Education. This program integrates high school classes, community connections, work-based learning, and post-secondary planning and training. The goal of CTE is to support learners on their path to high-wage, high skill, in-demand careers in established and emerging industries.

How Does CTE Work?

There are 15 high-demand industry sectors and multiple career pathways within each industry sector. Learners who opt in will sign up for a career pathway their freshman or sophomore year of high school and take three years of coursework within that pathway, in addition to relevant internship and work-based learning, student associations and clubs, career and college exploration and preparation, and industry certifications. Learners who complete all three years of coursework receive an additional certificate of completion, recognition at graduation, and post-graduation support. Many CTE courses also count toward SCVi’s graduation requirements and UC/CSU admissions requirements.

Is CTE just for high school?

Learners experience different industry sectors and career pathways through their projects in 7th and 8th grade. These feeder experiences, or exploratory workshops, allow learners to enter a career pathway in high school with prior experience and confidence in their interest in that pathway. Experiences such as the Glider Project, Entrepreneurship Fairs or Shark Tank projects, Coding and Game Design, school gardening and agriculture, theatre, and photography all have the potential to inspire a learner to work toward that profession through a CTE pathway.
