What are CTE Pathways?
A CTE Pathway is a method of searching for a career that
fits a student’s interests and lifestyle, and allows him
or her to build academic courses around it.

Photography Pathway this year at
American Fork High School.
CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION
Through competency-based instruction, hands-on experiences, and work-based learning opportunities, Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides all students with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to prepare for a successful career. The structured training each student receives gives him or her the tools needed to be successful in a career after high school and/or further his or her postsecondary education, whether at a technical school, or a two- or four-year college. Each student is encouraged to explore various areas of study and to develop the competencies that are necessary to enter today’s competitive job market with confidence.
