Career and Technical Education (CTE) DIPLOMA

Career and Technical Education (CTE) DIPLOMA

CTE is a NYS certified Program that allows students to receive a prestigious endorsement on their diploma after meeting specific business education course/sequence requirements. CTE programs seek to help students transition from high school to college and into family-sustaining wage careers. As a result, our students will become more marketable in their college and/or career search.
