    General Information

    Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) provides all students with the opportunity to select sequenced electives in a career pathway, along with recommended academic course work, to prepare them to continue their education at any level or enter the world of work. Selection of a pathway will be based on self- awareness and the investigation of occupations plus related educational levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still do require education beyond high school. Implementation of career pathways is a collaborative effort between the local system, the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia.

    · The CTAE Curriculum provides students opportunities in Agriculture, Business and Computer Science (BCS Brochure), Construction, Drafting, Family and Consumer Sciences, Graphic Arts, Health Sciences, JROTC, Marketing, Public Safety, and Video Broadcasting.

    · Co-curricular organizations such as FBLA, FFA, DECA, and NTHS provide students the opportunity to develop essential leadership and employability qualities.

    · School-to-Career Program provides educational and occupational experiences for students that will assist them in becoming productive citizens in the community. Students receive both academic and occupational experiences in the world of work that will increase their knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for employment and further education.
