CTE: Career Technical Education



Welcome to the Providence High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department!

Our Providence CTE department aims to prepare students for employment opportunities, advanced education and productive and happy lives. We want to meet students' needs, cultivate their abilities and help them realize their aspirations. Our hope is to expose students to many different career opportunities in many different fields in order to help them figure out which careers are best for them.

At Providence we offer CTE classes in the following areas (see chart below to see the specific classes we offer): engineering, biomedical sciences, horticulture, computer programming, automotive, architecture, business and marketing. In addition to offering classes to expose students to different fields, we also provide exposure in other ways, including career speakers, field trips, and job shadowing opportunities.


**All students meet with their designated counselor to review and discuss course requests.
