Career and Technical Education
CTE is split into 17 different career clusters that apply to different high-demand careers. First, CTE is focused on developing both professional and technical skills so students are better prepared to enter industry. Second, CTE incorporates learning from core curriculum into real world applications. This allows more hands-on opportunities for students to learn and practice skills. The programs are advised by business and industry to ensure the curriculum is REAL and RELEVANT for future employability. Many students have the opportunity to earn industry recognized certifications through their CTE classes that they can add to their resume and increase their employability. Explore what Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 can offer your student so they are better prepared for the world of work!

FALL 2019 CTE Advisory Night
This year advisory will have a slightly different approach. With our alliance with the Pikes Peak Business and Education Alliance (PPBEA) we will have some of our Advisories held off campus. This includes Hospitality/Culinary and Cyber/IT Advisorys. As the PPBEA becomes more established, we will continue to grow our Advisories by teaming up with school districts from our surrounding area to bring more business and industry to our table to ensure what we are teaching is REAL and RELEVANT. Please visit the PPBEA website at www.ppbea.org for more information.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Our other CTE programs will be holding their Advisorys on:
MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 5:30 - 7:00.
These Advisorys will be supporting the following classes:
