Welcome to the Career & Technical Education (CTE) Department!
The Career & Technical Education program provides context to core academics through integrated, applied and experiential learning with a broad exposure to career fields and a balanced high school experience. This program is one of the four core rigorous programs (AP, IB, CIS, and CTE) offered by Minneapolis Public Schools to support student achievement, reduce dropout rates, and prepare more students to become college and career ready.
Students participating in Career and Technical Education courses experience both rigorous academic and career preparation in state approved courses staffed by appropriately licensed staff. All students will graduate well prepared for postsecondary education, work, and citizenship. In addition, they will be connected with a variety of career opportunities through career exploration activities, job shadows, and internships.
