Berrien County Career & Technical Education (CTE) is a vibrant learning community with rich and diverse programming for our secondary students. Our purpose is to create a more relevant, engaging high school experience by combining the rigorous core academics that students need for college with the career and technical education that makes them employable, and to do it in an applied, hands-on way that includes real life experience. Not only does career relevant education keep students engaged in school but studies have shown that students in such programs have higher graduation rates than students who did not take CTE courses.
