• Programs by Career Cluster

    CTE programs are organized by career clusters, which are groupings of occupations and industries based on shared features or “core functions.” AACPS CTE programs are based on academic and technical skill standards to ensure student preparation for both college and careers.   Each career cluster represents a grouping of related occupations and industries, allowing you to focus your exploration on areas that align with your interests, skills, and passion.
