WHAT IS CTE?

CTE STANDS FOR CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION.

AT MORRO BAY HIGH SCHOOL, THERE ARE MANY CTE PROGRAMS FOR YOU TO CHOSE FROM:

AUTO, FFA, SPORTS MEDICINE, COMPUTER SCIENCE, CHILD DEVELOPMENT AND LAW ARE ALL CTE CLASSES.

UNLIKE AP AND COLLEGE PREP PROGRAMS, CTE STRIVE TO PROVIDE TECHNICAL AND WORKPLACE SKILLS SO STUDENTS CAN BE HIRED FOR INTERNSHIPS AND START BUILDING ON THEIR CAREER GOALS STRAIGHT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL (OR EVEN WHILE THEY ARE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL!).

LIKE AP AND COLLEGE PREP PROGRAMS, MOST CTE CLASSES AT MORRO BAY HIGH SCHOOL ARE "A-G," MEANING MOST COLLEGES WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THE CREDIT IN YOU APPLICATION. ALSO, MANY CTE CLASSES AT MORRO BAY HIGH OFFER COLLEGE CREDIT FOR THE CLASSES YOU TAKE. THIS IS CALLED "DUAL ENROLLMENT."
