The global marketplace is changing. Employers need individuals with high skills in science, technology, mathematics and communications. Through the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department, the Arlington Independent School District offers an enhanced educational system that prepares students for the future. The CTE Department oversees curriculum development and implementation, instructional resources, student identification, and staff development for the Career and Technical Education program.

The cooperative efforts of educational leaders and business/industry partners create an environment supportive of the lifelong learning process for every student. Partnerships allows students to make a smooth transition from high school into career and/or higher education.

CTE Programs

Career and Technical Education offers technical skills, academic skills and employability skills that give our students a head start after graduation. Additionally, CTE helps to increase graduation rates through engaging classes that improve our students’ problem solving, time management, critical thinking and work ethic. For non-college bound students, our CTE classes provide hands-on training that translates directly into careers upon graduation. For college-bound students, CTE classes provide a way to investigate potential areas of study in postsecondary education, and a CTE Program of Study completion gives them a competitive advantage in college admissions.
