The CTAE Department is committed to providing worthwhile education to students that will allow them to become productive members of society. Through lab settings, soft skills training, and hands-on learning, students are equipped with the skills that will allow them to be successful in post-secondary education and the workforce. Here in Early County, students have the chance to explore career options through 13 career pathways. Pathway completers have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications and/or state licensures by passing technical skill assessments. Juniors and seniors can simultaneously earn educational credits and gain on-the-job experience by participating in the Work-Based Learning or Youth Apprenticeship programs. With all the opportunities available to students, it is truly an exciting time in CTAE! We appreciate the support of our community on our quest to turn vision into action.

Career & Technical Student Organizations

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are a vital part of CTAE. CTSOs are co-curricular organizations with leadership programs and competitive events which reflect current curriculum standards and competencies for the instructional programs they serve. Teachers infuse the CTSO's activities into the instructional activities, thereby helping students see the real world value of their academic studies.
