Career & Technical Education (CTE) provides students the hands-on experience needed to be successful after high school. Students starting in middle school have the opportunity to explore a variety of careers from engineering and culinary arts to health science and law enforcement. Alongside the students' coursework, they are exposed to real-world experiences such as guest speakers, job shadowing, internships, and more.

There are 15 CTE programs of study in WPISD that meet high school graduation endorsement requirements. Each of these programs of study has a career pathway that provides coherent, articulated sequences of rigorous CTE courses. End of program industry-recognized certificates and/or licenses are available for most programs of study.

Below are the offerings we currently have for the 2022-2023 school year. You will find more information on each program of study and how it can impact each students future choices.
