Learn About CTE and e-Communication Academy

  • Ten of our 15 Academies have a Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathway embedded in them. This means the courses they already take in the Academy also follow a CTE pathway. When a student earns an Academy Endorsement by completing all the requirements, they may also earn a "CTE Completer" status. Both the Academy Endorsement and the CTE Completer status will be printed on the student's transcript. These are great tools on the resume to show a student's accomplishments. Additionally, CTE Completers are eligible for CTE Scholars recognition.

    The CTE Digital Medial pathway, the Graphic Design pathway and the Web and Digital Communication pathway are embedded into the e-Communication Academy. Students will complete one of these pathways depending on the strand they choose to follow in the academy.
