Career-Focused Education

A New Option in 2018

Construction on Aldine ISD’s new Career and Technical Education High School (CTEHS) begins in 2017.

The CTEHS compliments the District’s growing range of options for students. The District’s main goal is to ensure all students graduate from high school career and college ready.

Specialized Setting

The specialized setting will provide CTEHS students with access to real-world experiences and career training. Students will graduate with licences, workforce certifications and hours toward post-secondary education. Dual credit courses help students finish college early and even save on college costs.

Personalized Learning

In order to create a supportive personalized learning environment, the CTEHS will have a limited campus enrollment.

Skilled Workers in Demand

The career-focused curriculum and programs will prepare students for the workforce. Students will develop specific academic, intellectual and technical knowledge and experiences. They will gain the 21st century skills necessary to be competitive in the global workforce.

Many of these high-paying jobs don’t need a two- or four-year college degree. CTEHS students will be able to earn industry-recognized certifications. This will allow them to enter the workforce upon graduation.
