All students are encourage to be a PATHWAY COMPLETER:

A pathway completer is a student who completes the three required courses for a specific pathway. Selection of the pathway is based on self-awareness and the investigation of occupations plus related educational levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still require education beyond high school.

Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational skills to prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce. The state of Georgia has identified 17 Career Clusters that are structured to prepare students for Georgia’s workforce. Georgia’s 17 Career Cluster Model represents multiple pathways, which guides students to success for college preparation and career development. The curriculum for each cluster is based on a set of common knowledge, skills and abilities which prepares students for various opportunities. These opportunities include but are not limited to advanced curriculum, Move On When Ready, Work-based Learning, career awareness, career development and employability skills.

CTAE Department Goals are to PREPARE students to...

  • Compete in a global and technological society
  • Enter and meet the needs of a high demand and high skilled workforce
  • Pursue post-secondary options without the need for remediation
  • Become self-directed and lifelong learners
