Career and Technical Education (CTE) is a program of study that involves the integration of academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge. CTE provides students with a pathway to the post secondary education and careers required in our global economy. All approved CTE programs in Michigan must align their local curriculum to post secondary and industry standards. Students meeting the program standards have the opportunity to earn college credit and/or certifications if they are juniors or seniors in high school. Students must take one of the two programming languages (WIN-IT A OR B) and BOTH Web Design and Networking classes to complete the program (WIN-IT C and D). Credit for Lansing Community College can be earned in all of the classes if a student is a junior or senior and earns an 80% in the class. This translates to free college credits: if a student takes all four classes it is 14 credits. When students are finished with the program, they may study for and take the A+ Certification exam. Passing the A+ exam will help a student become a Computer Technician or will aid them in a technology career.

Students should be aware that these are college articulated classes, which means they contain college level work. Expect to do several hours of homework a week in these classes. Internet access is a must! At the end of the program, each student will be required to take a state of Michigan designed test.
