Career and Technical Education
Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares Montana K-12 students for a wide range of careers and post secondary education programs. CTE courses are found in Montana's middle schools, high schools and career centers.
CTE courses provide students with life and employment skills to make them highly desirable employees in today's modern workforce. Skills learned in K-12 Career and Technical Education courses prepare students to go directly into the workforce or to continue their education with a much higher degree of focus and direction for their career goals.
Montana has over 500 approved CTE programs and over 800 certified teachers in Agriculture, Business, Marketing, Family and Consumer Sciences, Industrial Technology, and Health Sciences. More than 150 Montana high schools participate in the federal Carl D. Perkins and state Career and Technical Education grant programs to support and improve their Career and Technical Education programs.
