Career and Technical Education

  • The mission of Career Technical Education (CTE) is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers, & leaders in a global economy.

    CTE is an integral part of the comprehensive secondary school program in Craven County Schools. CTE provides course offerings that meet student needs, interests, abilities, and aspirations. The availability of specific courses is determined by response to opportunities for employment, advanced education, and practical life application.
