Many Pathways for Students to Consider

  • Olathe Career PathwaysOlathe Public Schools offers a variety of Career and Technical Education pathways for students to explore, expand their knowledge and technical skills, and to prepare for postsecondary and careers. Currently, Olathe has 22 different CTE pathways.

    • Non-Transfer: These Career Pathways and Visual and Performing Arts options are available at all five high schools. Students attend their boundary high school and do not need to transfer locations.​
    • Non-Transfer: Programs offered at Olathe Advanced Technical Center (OATC) are for students who are juniors and seniors. These are also non-transfer programs. Students attend their boundary high school for part of the school day (to receive core content credits), and attend OATC for part of the school day (to receive advanced technical training).​
    • Transfer: 21st Century Academies are considered transfer programs and students must apply and be accepted. These are at select high school locations. Ten of the 15 academies follow a CTE Pathway.​
