Career and Technical Education (CTE) hidden

The Goal of CTE

Career and Technical Education (CTE) empowers students for effective participation in a global economy as world-class contributors and citizens. Students in grades 7 to 12 receive rigorous and relevant instruction that is tied to business and industry standards.  Additionally, students at Fayetteville High School have the opportunity to pursue nationally-recognized industry certifications prior to graduation.  

Become a CTE Completer

CTE students at Fayetteville High School who complete a pathway by earning 3 full credits as determined by the Arkansas Department of Career Education and graduate from FHS, earn the distinction of "Career and Technical Education Scholar" and are awarded a graduation cord, a certificate issued by the state of Arkansas, and are honored at a special recognition ceremony to be held May 10, 2017, at the Performing Arts Center at Fayetteville High School.

CTE in Fayetteville Public Schools

Picture representing Career Education

Career and Technical Education students in Fayetteville Public Schools begin their success journey with a focused exploration of their self in relation to the world of work. Students discover their interests, talents, aptitudes, and abilities, as well as the careers best suited to them. The workforce that our students will encounter will evolve into one where skills and academics go hand in hand. CTE classes have evolved over the years to incorporate challenging industry certifications, rigorous academic standards (reading, writing and mathematics), relevant career standards, and dynamic life skills.
