DECA logoCareer and Technical Education is

Classroom instruction — the essential component for students to master the academic and technical competencies, attitudes, and work ethic essential for career success and lifelong learning

Student organizations — experiences that reinforce and strengthen classroom learning and prepare students for individual responsibility, teamwork, and leadership in their chosen occupations (DECA, FBLA, TSA)

Employment experience — opportunities for students to apply and refine knowledge, attitudes, and skills through professionally coordinated and supervised work experience directly related to career goals.

We teach classes such as, Architectural Drawing, Construction Technology, Fashion Marketing, International Marketing, IT Fundamentals and Sports Marketing to name a few.
