We strive for our students’ success in school and in their future careers.
Career & Technical Education (CTE) is at the forefront of preparing students to be “career- and college -ready.” CTE equips students with:
- core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills to concrete situations in order to function in the workplace and in routine daily activities
- employability skills (such as critical thinking and responsibility) that are essential in any career area
- job-specific, technical skills related to a specific career pathway
CTE provides an excellent option that will lead to high skill, high wage & high demand jobs. CTE keeps kids in school; Michigan CTE students graduate in four years of high school 93% of the time compared to non-CTE students that graduate 79% of the time in four years. CTE helps give Ionia County the skilled workforce necessary to attract new business & industry.
