Over 70 course offerings allow students the opportunity to explore multiple career pathways, and develop professional skills in a particular area of interest.
- One CTE credit is required for graduation
- Some courses in the Career and Technical Education Department fulfill the Fine Arts requirement or receive Science credit
- Several courses provide Dual Credit through the College of DuPage.
Students are encouraged to plan ahead and make purposeful elective choices while considering future college and career goals and interests. Some upper level courses have prerequisites, are scheduled in a block, or are offered only in one semester. Review these details carefully when creating a high school course plan.
The CTE Department offers classes in four subgroups:
