Get Career Clear Here.

Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs offered by the Georgia Department of Education and the Technical College System of Georgia allow students the opportunity to explore a wide range of exciting career options while they’re still in high school. 

Designed to help middle and high school students explore before they head out into the world, CTAE encourages participants to find their future passion and to enhance their overall school experience. CTAE helps you become career clear by senior year and on the road to college, career, and life success!

CTAE Delivers Real Benefits.

Discovery = Clarity. Clarity = Self-confidence. Self-confidence = College and Career Success. CTAE delivers real-world skills and hands-on learning programs that give students the confidence and clarity to step out into the world with real college and career plans. In fact, less than 3% of CTAE participants say they don’t know what they want to do after high school, and parents of CTAE students are three times more likely to report that they are “very satisfied” with their child’s ability to learn real-world skills.

High School. Only Better.

CTAE doesn’t take the place of high school — it enhances the experience. Students enrolled in CTAE programs still attend regular classes and participate in school activities such as sports and the arts. CTAE delivers a difference in students’ lives through the introduction and exposure to real-world opportunities within their communities. Specialized classes, internships, and the ability to network with local businesses are just some of the ways CTAE adds value to the high school experience. CTAE students and their parents are twice as likely to agree the experience makes high school that much better.

Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) helped make what I wanted to do after high school clear. With hands-on and practical learning, CTAE gave me the best high school experience.
