Career & Technical Education
Career and Technical Education (CTE) plays a vital role in preparing students for high wage, high skill, and high demand careers. Through CTE planned programs of study, students are able to gain knowledge and explore multiple career pathways. Each course is academically rigorous and aligned to current industry standards.
Currently, the Lake Stevens CTE Department is comprised of teachers and support staff in two middle schools, one mid high school, and one high school. Lake Stevens is very fortunate to have a very talented and caring group of professionals who are focused on helping students make a successful transition from high school to the world of work, and/or continue their education through the military, technical school, two year community college or university. Many of our CTE classes are aligned with the community colleges so our students may earn college credit in high school while earning high school credit.
We are proud of our students' successes in CTE and invite all students and families to be a part of the Lake Stevens CTE programs. In addition, all of our programs have a business-industry advisory committee that is comprised of community members who help advise on how best to prepare our students for life after high school. If you would like to arrange a tour and/or would like to learn more about how you can become involved in CTE, or if you have questions about our programs, please call or e-mail me. I look forward to talking with you.
