Farrington CTE (Career & Technical Education)

Career and Technical Education (CTE) is an educational program that aligns academic standards with technical knowledge and skills to prepare students for careers in current or emerging occupations and further education. The structure allows students the opportunity to explore and learn through the practical application of academic and technical skills, knowledge needed for high wage and high skill careers, and/or postsecondary education.

CTE is the only educational program in which course content is guided by business and industry input.

Common elements — critical thinking, new technologies, real-world settings, hands-on activities, and the application of learning to practical problems, for example — align with a growing emphasis on 21st century skills — skills that are relevant to all academic subject areas and that can be applied in educational, career, and civic contexts throughout a student’s life.
