The Career and Technical Department offers a wide variety of technical courses for collaboration with academic courses. Our teachers are dedicated in the preparation of students to further their education in the post-secondary level of technical skills education, as well as preparing students to enter the job market with a positive influence.
Science Hill High School offers 12 career clusters. Within each career cluster, programs of study (also called career pathways) have been developed, which outline sequences of academic, career, and technical courses and training that begin as early as ninth grade and lead to progressively higher levels of education and higher-skilled positions in specific industries or occupations. Some of the career clusters that we offer here at Science Hill contain several programs of study or career pathways.
Each CTE Program of Study (POS) sponsors a CTE Student Organization (CTSO). These organizations, which are designed to enhance career and technical education programs, provide career and leadership development through peer interactions, adult mentoring, and contests and competitions based on knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. Students have the opportunity to participate on a local, regional, state, and national levels.
Students must have 3 credits in an elective focus to graduate. These credits can be in academics, fine arts, JROTC or a CTE cluster program. To complete the elective focus credits in a CTE program, all 3 credits must be in the same program of study. **Class fee possibly required for some classes. Check fee list in student handbook.
