During the three year program, you’ll alternate between classroom and on the job training. Click here for more information.

CTE There are a variety of CTE programs available to students in Marquette and Alger Counties.  More information is available on all of those programs on this here.  CTE programs equip students with technical and life skills in areas ranging from cosmetology to finance.  These programs have the same rigorous content and challenging academic standards as other high school courses.  They are academically aligned with college courses and students are eligible to receive college credit if they do well in their high school class.

Professions that require hands-on talent, such as electrical repair, plumbing and HVAC maintenance, fall under the category of skilled trades. You might wonder, “don’t all jobs require skills?” Although the industry name sounds vague, it does point out the unique position of these workers because their skills are tangible in a way that others aren’t. With so many trades to choose from, finding the right one can seem challenging.
