Career Technical & Ag Education
(CTAE)

Welcome to the CTAE department. Preparing TCHS students to be successful in their career choice has been our long time goal. We strive to provide students with meaningful school-to-career initiatives that will prepare students for life beyond high school. The CTAE department offers four career pathways that enable students to both explore their interests and use advanced applications through real world project activities, embedded with academic skills, in up-to-date lab settings. Instructors work diligently to provide students with rigorous and relevant courses that will ensure they graduate from high school with the skills and experience to succeed in college and/or full-time employment.

Mission Statement

To provide career-focused educational opportunities that prepare all students with the life and work skills to successfully compete in a 21st century workforce.
