About Career and Technical Education
Students in Shelby County Schools who plan carefully may be placed in high wage, high skill, or high demand occupations by participating in Career and Technical Education. CTE programs are in all middle schools, high schools, and at the Career Technical Educational Center. Gone are the days of “trade” or “vocational” schools. The programs are much more rigorous, relevant, and aligned with Business/Industry Standards for the workforce of tomorrow. Students have an opportunity to enter the job market with a high-paying skill or they may continue their education. Many of the programs offer articulation and/or dual credit with neighboring post-secondary community colleges.
CTEC Logo Shelby County Schools offers a centralized career and technical center open to all students who attend Shelby County Schools through an application process. Visit CTEC for more information about the programs and classes that are offered.
