Career & Technical Education

  • The mission of the Chatham County Schools is to graduate globally competitive, well-rounded students by providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum in an effective, safe, and nurturing learning environment.

    College Ready and Career Ready

    Career and Technical Education (CTE) in our district is highlighted by multiple state and national award-winning programs across a range of curriculum areas, including Business and Marketing, Food and Nutrition, Agriculture, Trade and Industrial, Health Occupations, and Technology. CTE also serves and supports students in grades 6 through 8 with Business and Computer courses. Through interest inventories and career planning, students develop core academic skills, employability skills, and job specific skills. Internships, job shadowing, and industry-level certifications are also offered for students interested in pairing classroom knowledge with real-world experiences.
