School to Career

 

At Eastlake High School, we are committed to providing our students with opportunities that will impact their future careers.

 

CAREER  TECHNICAL  EDUCATION  (CTE)  PATHWAYS

CTE pathways are programs of study that involve a multiyear sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to post-secondary education and careers.

The main focus of CTE is to prepare students for academic achievement, career exploration, career preparation, and leadership development. The successful transition to post-secondary education and the workplace will be accomplished through the principles of college and career readiness: communication, collaboration, problem-solving, professionalism, job shadowing, internships, and business partnerships.

CTE PATHWAYS AT EASTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL INCLUDE:
Engineering Design
Digital, Visual and Media Arts
Healthcare Administrative Services
Patient Care
