The career and technical education programs follow the Michigan Career Pathways model, which focuses students on making informed career preparation decisions for college and career success. Career and technical education programs provide rigorous and relevant learning that enables students to effectively compete in an expanding global economy. Although each program offers unique opportunities, the hallmark of the career and technical education is to provide students with the technical skills, relevant academic skills, career employability skills and 21st century skills needed for success in both college and career. In order to best prepare students for post-secondary success, career and technical education programs have begun to offer free articulated college credit specific to the technical program. Additionally, specific programs have met the standard to offer the certain academic credits, specifically for the visual, performing, and applied arts and the fourth year related math credit requirement.
