Career Technical Education (CTE) Programs at Castaic

What is CTE? Career Technical Education (CTE) is an education pathway that provides students with the academic, technical, real-world knowledge, skills and experience they need to be prepared for a variety of career options. Career and technical education courses give students hands-on experience with current, real-world technologies and help close the skills gap while providing students with an alternative to college.
Castaic High School offers several CTE Pathways through state-of-the-art facilities. All courses are taught by CTE teachers who have had practical work experience in the subjects they teach. 
Some pathways courses are high school level courses, while others give college credit, through Castaic High School's Dual Enrollment Program, iCAN.
