Career and Technology Studies (CTS) is an opportunity for high school students (10-12) to be designers of their own learning through the pursuit of personally meaningful occupational pathways in which they are encouraged to explore their passions and interests. Students will be asked to engage in tasks that are rigorous, deeply relevant and reflect the professional standards of the occupational areas in which they are studying, delivered through hands-on experiential learning.
Students build relationships that support and encourage success through the development of attitudes, skills, knowledge and values to support their career development journey from exploratory through to specialized or credentialed programming. Connecting learning to other disciplines students are encouraged to communicate their learning in a local and global context, demonstrating cultural sensitivity, and promoting personal growth.
Using the latest equipment and technologies students will apply problem solving strategies to challenges while developing and evaluating possible creative and innovative solutions. CTS is designed to follow a flexible model with learning not only through in-school experiences also may include learning through community partners and industry professionals.
