Why be a CTE Completer?

CTE completers take 4 courses from a career cluster—one must be a completer course and one can be an enhancement course.  Completing a CTE cluster benefits you in the following ways:

    ·        Around 95% of Martin County Schools CTE completers leave high school with a diploma. 

    ·        All CTE completers will have the opportunity to prepare for and take the WorkKeys assessment which provides students a national, industry-recognized work preparedness certificates at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Level.  This certificate has become a prerequisite for working in numerous large industries throughout the nation and is currently used by several industries in the Northeast.

    ·        Martin County Schools offers a strong internship and apprenticeship program.  Beginning in 2013-2014, students must take their “completer” course before participating in an internship or apprenticeship program.

    ·        Students who are completers learn about opportunities in a career cluster and acquire skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in the cluster.

    ·        Some CTE courses are eligible for articulated credit with a B and a 93 post-assessment score.  Many of these courses are second level courses.

    ·        Beginning in 2013-2014, completers who meet program guidelines will be eligible to participate in the National Technical Honor Society.  Students will be able to compete for the scholarships.  See https://www.nths.org/ for more information.

    ·        Beginning in 2013-2014, many completer courses will carry honors credit.  See your registration guide for more information.

Articulated Credits 

The North Carolina High School to Community College Articulation Agreement is an agreement between the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and the North Carolina Community College System.

The North Carolina High School to Community College Articulation Agreement provides a seamless process that joins secondary and postsecondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs of study.

This statewide articulation agreement is comprised of approximately 50 high school CTE courses that match the knowledge and skills taught in similar community college courses. The articulation agreement ensures that if a student is proficient in their high school course, the student can receive college credit for that course at any North Carolina community college. This streamlines the student's educational pathway by eliminating the need to take multiple courses with the same learning outcomes.

To receive articulated credit, students must enroll at the community college within two years of their high school graduation date and meet the following criteria:

  • Final grade of B or higher in the course and
  • A score of 93 or higher on the standardized CTE postassessment

High school students who enroll in a Career and College Promise pathway may earn articulated college credit as described in this agreement while enrolled in high school if the CTE articulated college credit is part of their Career and College Promise pathway.

Community college officials verify eligibility and acceptance of articulated courses listed on the high school transcript. Students may be asked to submit supporting documentation and/or demonstrate proficiency to receive credit. Colleges must follow the criteria of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges in awarding credit.
