Learn About CTE and Sports Medicine & Exercise Science Academy

  • Ten of our 15 Academies have a Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathway embedded in them. This means the courses they already take in the Academy also follow a CTE pathway.  When a student earns an Academy Endorsement by completing all the requirements they may also earn a "CTE Completer" status.  Both the Academy Endorsement and the CTE Completer status will be printed on the student's transcript.  These are great tools on the resume to show a student's accomplishments.  Additionally, CTE Completers are eligible for CTE Scholars recognition.

     

    The CTE Health Science Pathway is embedded into the Sports Medicine and Exercise Science Academy.
