CUSD Career Pathways &
Career Technical Education
Welcome to the Carlsbad Unified School District Career Pathways & Career Technical Education Site
Carlsbad Unified Connections, six exemplary high school students involved in our many Career Pathways, are highlighted. We strive to prepare all of our graduates for their futures - including preparation for university, community college, trade school, military service, or direct entry into the world of work after high school - and our pathways programs are a key piece in our plan.
Career Pathways & Career Technical Education consist of academic integration, course sequences, work-based learning, and essential technical and non-technical workplace skills for students. CUSD's Career Pathways have a sequence of two or more courses in a student's area of career interest. Pathways connect high school classes to college and career. CTE FAQ's
