Welcome to Career and Technical Education (CTE)


Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide students a variety of courses and extracurricular opportunities where they can explore their career interests; participate in regional, state and national competitions; develop leadership and practical life skills; and prepare for a variety of high demand career fields within our region. All CTE classes are supported by local business partners and align with what is needed for success in today’s ever-changing workplace!  Many of these courses also provide college credit as well as equivalency credit for other academic areas including Art, Math, Science, PE and Health.  

It is our mission to provide relevant and meaningful instruction which prepare our graduates to be ready for life.  To this end, we are focused on providing our students a variety of rigorous and meaningful programs which support regional workforce needs and align with required state and federal CTE program standards.

CTE Pathways


Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathways are organized programs of study designed which allow students to pursue studies in specific fields of interests while preparing for their post-high school goals.  Each CTE Pathway provides opportunities for students to obtain college credit and/or industry recognized certification, and leads directly to employment or an articulated apprenticeship or college program.  

Recent changes in state graduation requirements provides students the option to meet state Math and English/Language Arts Graduation Pathway requirements by completing 2 credits within an approved CTE Pathway related to their career interests and goals.  For an overview of CTE Pathways in the Edmonds School District, we have created a downloadable CTE Pathways Planning Guide which provides an overview of each CTE Pathway option including information on how to include CTE Pathways as part of the student's 4-year plan for high school and beyond.  

Students may also visit our CTE Pathways website for more detailed information for each CTE Pathway area.
