Discover Career & Technical Education

Career & Technical Education helps prepare students who want to embark on a career trajectory while still in high school. Students can choose from 19 pathways, each with four to six sequenced courses. Some pathways can result in industry certifications while still in high school. Others provide early credit toward a post-secondary degree. All of them offer the opportunity to connect with future employers through job shadowing and internships.

Check out the new CTE website – go to to see student videos, CTE pathways, classes and locations, and search engines that give students ways to explore their interests and match those interests to CMS opportunities.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools wants to ensure that every student is ready for the next step after high school, whether that step is college, career or military service.

Please spread the word about the Career & Technical Education Fair on February 23. Details below.
