CTE ImageCareer Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context. In fact, the high school graduation rate for CTE concentrators is about 90 percent – 15 percentage points higher than the national average.
In addition, CTE pathways at MHHS are organized into Professional Pathways.  These pathways are an optional way for students to plan their high school courses and specialize in a certain area of interest.  Students may choose to take a 3-4 course CTE Professional Pathway sequence that gains the student pathway recognition upon graduation.  Students apply for professional pathway recognition during their senior year, and students may apply for recognition in more than one area.  See our Professional Pathways Guide for more information.
