CTE Career Clusters - High Schools

CTE Career Clusters - Middle Schools


Austin ISD's CTE programs are aligned with Texas CTE 16 Career Clusters.  Career clusters group associated courses in order to guide students through a Program of Study that will prepare them for secondary, post-secondary opportunities, skilled enployment, and active citizenship.  Career Programs of Study represent a recommended sequence of courses based on a student's interests, goals and aptitudes.  Combined with a four-year plan of course work, students can utilize the programs of study in creating the framework for success.  Not all clusters are offered at all schools.  Contact your school counselor or our CTE office for additional information.
