Career and Technical Education


Career and Technical Education (CTE)


 Austin ISD's Career and Technical Education (CTE) is continuously striving to provide students with the academic knowledge and technical skills needed for successful, high-paying careers.  Regardless of what is in store for them after high school - a community college, a university, the military or a job - today's students are developing the skills and habits that will get them started on their career paths.  The CTE team is committed to providing opportunities to take technical courses that provide them with 21st century knowledge and skills to compete in a global society.


Mission Statement


Our mission is to provide opportunities for students to acquire 21st century academic and technical skills needed for entry into the global workforce and/or postsecondary education in order to become contributing members of their community.  




All Career and Technical Education students will graduate ready for college, career and life in a global, multicultural society.
