Career Readiness Begins with CTE

  • Kannapolis City Schools offers Career Technical Education (CTE) programs at A. L. Brown High School designed to prepare students for a broad range of employment and post-secondary educational opportunities. Research has found that the most successful high school graduates were those who took a solid college-prep program and a Career Technical Education program of study. Our CTE programs are staffed by teachers with related business and industry experiences that enhances the learning process with real-world relevance.

    Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses provide a strong foundation for post-secondary education and careers. Whether students plan to further their education in community college, technical schools, four-year colleges and universities, receive on-the-job training, or pursue careers in military, CTE can be the first step toward productive employment and citizenship. The mission for the CTE program in Kannapolis is to help empower students for effective participation in an international economy as world-class workers and citizens. We fulfill this mission by:

    • Preparing students for post-secondary education in career technical fields and lifelong learning.
    • Preparing students for initial and continued employment.
    • Assisting students in making educational and career decisions.
    • Applying and reinforcing related learning from other disciplines.
    • Assisting students in developing decision-making, communication, problem-solving, leadership, and citizenship skills.
    • Preparing students to make informed consumer decisions and apply practical life skills.
    • Making appropriate provisions for students with special needs to succeed in career technical education programs.
