The future of New York City hinges on student success and a well-prepared work force. Students with a Career and Technical Education (CTE) background gain valuable knowledge and skills necessary for them to enter the 21st century work force.
CTE programs offered in high schools are developed in response to future employment opportunities and the potential for career growth in New York City. Currently, CTE programs are offered in fields ranging from aviation technology and culinary arts to emergency management and multimedia production. CTE is delivered in two ways across the City: at designated CTE high schools and CTE programs in other high schools.
