Planning for the Future

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are about providing students with choices and skills they need for their future. CTE classes address the specific program standards and reinforce the academic standards embedded across the CTE curriculum. We provide students with learning opportunities in a contextual, problem-solving format that applies to various post-secondary options.

Our focus is to prepare students to continue their education in college, community college, industry certification, or to enter the workplace. Strong academic skills blended with relevant career and technical curriculum will lead to viable career paths.

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) relate to specific CTE program areas and provide students with the opportunity to:

  • Learn leadership skills
  • Problem solve with adults
  • Compete in specific technical skills

A Joint Technical Education District

Ajo High School provides courses in the vocational field in conjunction with Pima County’s JTED (Joint Technical Education District). JTED classes are open to 10–12 graders.
