The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department allows students to experience hands-on learning and acquire skills that are transferable to future careers and post-secondary training and education options. CTE prepares students for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in an experiential context. National studies have proven that the high school graduation rate for students who earned 1 or more credits in a CTE program of study is about 90% - 15 percentage points higher than the national average.
Beginning in Fall 2022, HRVHS will offer 6 CTE Programs of Study – Agricultural Science & Technology, Engineering, Health Sciences, Integrated Media and Education, and Business. In step with the State’s Future Ready Oregon policy agenda, each Program of Study offers students a sequence of classes (including some for college credit) academic knowledge and technical skills to provide a foundation for future careers. Each of the 6 Programs of Study offers a CTE Capstone Course, which allows CTE Concentrators (students who have successfully completed at least 2 credits within their chosen Program of Study) to engage in a workplace-based internship directly related to their chosen career pathway. Any student who completes the CTE Capstone will earn .5 credits and fulfill the EA requirement for graduation.
Please note: In some CTE programs, students will be working in a shop setting (i.e. Wood Technology, Metal Technology, Metal Fabrication, Power & Technology) where appropriate attire will be enforced - full length pants, closed-toed shoes, and protective eyewear.
