Delsea CTE

BRIDGING THE GAP FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE WORKFORCE.

What Is CTE?

Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context. In fact, the high school graduation rate for CTE concentrators is about 90% – 15 percentage points higher than the national average. Source.

Delsea CTE History

Delsea began its’ participation in Career and Technical Education programs in the 2007-2008 school year, responding to a call from the state and community to increase opportunities for students. By the 2008-2009 school year, 14 programs were being offered to students. The programs implemented in the district met both community and industry needs, providing all students with the skills needed to be successful after high school. The mission of the district is to foster a collaborative learning community that is passionately committed to educate all students to become lifelong learners, develop character, and become valuable members of our community, country, and world. Over the years, the programs being offered have changed as society, industry, community, and district needs changed, meeting the demands of a global society. CTE programs at Delsea support the district’s vision of “Educating, inspiring, and empowering our students and staff to excellence. The pride of the community. The best in the nation.”
