Suwannee High School offers many Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs to students. CTE programs provides student with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners.
Research suggests that CTE can benefit all students, even those whose plans already include four-year college.
Some of the positive effects of CTE courses are:
- Combining CTE with core courses prepares more students for success beyond graduation.
- CTE courses develop students’ noncognitive skills better than core courses alone.
- Taking CTE courses prevents dropout because it offers practical applications of knowledge that can help students see the relevancy of their instruction.
- CTE-related learning improves students’ overall academic motivation and performance.
