Pathways in Career Readiness (CTE)
Union County Public Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE or Career Readiness) strives to provide a wide array of small personalized learning communities within different high schools across the county in order to promote Student Choice and prepare students for College and Careers. There are a number of pathways offered at schools across UCPS that are open to all students regardless of attendance zones, but require an application process to determine availability based on a number of factors. These pathways are referred to as Academies.
Students can apply for entrance into an Academy through a voluntary application process which requires parent approval, support, and knowledge. Academy classes are often taught by teachers from various industries and have real-world experience and knowledge in their specialty area. More information about Academies including where they are offered and how to apply.
Many other pathways are offered at each high school based on student registration numbers. These range across program areas and are only referred to as other CTE pathway options. More information about what pathways are available at their home schools only.
