Welcome to Career and Technical Education
Career and Technical Education (CTE) in District 11 is a comprehensive program that connects students, grades 6-12, to work-based learning opportunities and a career-centered curriculum. Currently, CTE has over 58 programs at all middle and high schools. All CTE programs in D11 are state-approved and part of the Community College of Colorado System. Programs vary by school but are accessible from 6-8 grades at the middle school level, and 10-12 grades at the high school level.
Within the last 10 years, D11 has expanded the CTE programs to include the Roy J. Wasson Academic Campus (RJWAC). The Career Pathways, or the CTE programs offered at RJWAC, serve as a central hub; granting access to students whose schools don't have specific CTE programs. Transportation to and from RJWAC is provided throughout the day to students who would like to join a Career Pathway on RJWAC.
All CTE programs are supported by active student organizations that are co-curricular in development and support classroom learning with opportunities outside of the class. CTE programs partner with local businesses in the industry to develop work-based opportunities for students.
Colorado Springs School District 11 is proud of the award-winning CTE programs and Career Pathways. If you want it, we have it!
