Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Career & Technical Education is an educational option that provides learners with the knowledge and skills they need for college, career, and lifelong learning.  CTE gives additional purpose to education by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge within a selected career focus. 

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.
