CTE Works for High School Students

High school students involved in CTE are more engaged, perform better and graduate at higher rates.
  • Taking one CTE class for every two academic classes minimizes the risk of students dropping out of high school.
  • The average high school graduation rate for students concentrating in CTE programs is 93 percent, compared to an average national freshman graduation rate of 80 percent.
  • 91 percent of high school graduates who earned 2-3 CTE credits enrolled in college.
