Career and Technical Education at Central High School
Central High School's Career and Technical Education programs offer many wide-ranging professional education opportunities. Each discipline uses a highly-detailed plan of study that outlines what courses students should take to complete a 3- to 4-year CTE pathway.
Central High School offers a series of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) STEM courses in the areas of Biomedical, Engineering, and Computer Science. Students who complete a PLTW course have the opportunity to earn dual credit through the University of Colorado@Colorado Springs (UCCS).
At Central, 9 CTE programs are offered. To learn more, consult Central's Course Description Guide.
Central CTE programs
The goal is to have the students be successful in college, so they can get those jobs and stay in our community, so our community flourishes. And with the training and knowledge offered through Central’s CTE program, students are well prepared for that post-secondary progression.
At Central High School, veteran educators Kim VanHee and Brad Ranson are in the “business” of providing students with the skills and assets needed to excel in the world: whether that be in business or another arena.
