CTE Programs of Study in the areas of Business & Marketing, Digital & Interactive Media, Manufacturing, Early Childhood Education, and Hospitality & Tourism: Culinary Arts are focused elective paths. Elective credits in additional math & science courses and in world language are highly recommended for college-bound students. For admission into a 4- year college, students must have two years of the same world language.
