8th graders, from the middle school, toured the CTE campus on Mon, Dec. 12, 2016. Students were divided into small groups and attended 20-minute sessions throughout the day in order to have a better understanding of each program when registering for high school elective credits.

Students saw presentations in all programs including Engineering, WoodTech, Photography/Journalism, Criminal Justice, Culinary, Graphic Design/Print Shop, Ready Set Teach, Game Design & Coding, Health Science, Agriculture, Audio Video, and next year’s Intro to Cosmetology course.

Advanced CTE students discussed learning objectives, possible certifications, intro and advanced course descriptions, organizations to join, and career opportunities available in all offered programs.

“Our Health Science program benefited because the kids were able to take a look at the big picture,” said Health Science teacher Mindi Davenport. “The variety of stations we had set up equipped them with an idea of what our program offers.  I feel like they were prepped and able to ask questions.  Therefore, they will not be blind-sided and will know what is expected.  We were able to tell the individuals that were excited and the ones that were completely not interested.  I’m excited to see what next year brings!”

CTE director, Brad Langley also arranged an evening dinner and tour for middle school parents so they could meet each teacher and discuss options for their upcoming freshman students.
