What is a CTE pathway?
A CTE pathway is a sequence of two or more CTE courses within a student’s area of career interest. Pathways are designed to connect high school classes to college, industry certifications, and/or a career.
Why should students participate in a CTE pathway?
While in high school, students have the opportunity to acquire free technical skills training in the career field he/she is interested in. Students will learn valuable technical skills and soft skills making them employable regardless of the field of study they actually end up in.
“UC a-g” approved CTE courses
The A-G / College Entrance Requirements are a sequence of high school courses that students must complete (with a grade of C or better) to be minimally eligible for admission to the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU).
The purposes of the A-G / College Entrance Requirements are to ensure that entering students:
- Can participate fully in the first year program at UC and CSU in a broad variety of fields of study;
- Have attained the necessary preparation for courses, majors, and programs offered at UC and CSU
- Have attained a body of knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced studies;
- Have attained essential critical thinking and study skills. Many CTE courses satisfy the “a-g” subject requirements approved
