Career & Technical Education (CTE)

The Mission of the Clarkston Career Tech program is to prepare students so they have the necessary academic, technical, and work behavior skills to enter, compete, and advance in education and their careers.

The Clarkston Career Tech programs of study offers an array of benefits for students in grades 6-12, including contextual environment for developing high-level academic skills, to providing specific industry certification or post-secondary credit in an occupational field. Students who are interested in pursuing careers requiring specific technical skills, as well as providing a strong foundation for those pursuing a traditional four-year (or more) degree will find an exciting challenge in CTE. It is an integral component of the total education mission, contributing to the goals of high academic achievement, student retention and motivation, and the development of general workplace and life skills.
