Career-Technical Education in Escondido’s High Schools
Career-Technical Education (CTE) programs benefit students academically and teach technical skills that translate into postsecondary education and careers.
Our high schools offer 35 unique CTE pathways in nine industry sectors.
These include: agriculture; arts, media & entertainment; health & medical; engineering & design; automotive; building trades & construction; information technology; marketing, sales & service; among others.
Often, students earn industry certification through their high school curriculum such as food handler cards and San-On NC3 certificates for students in our automotive pathway.
These certifications show proof of transferable skills and provide unique skill sets for our students.
Thirty-four of EUHSD’s classes offer college credit through articulation agreements at Palomar, Mesa, Grossmont, and Mt. Sac community colleges.
Close to 300 EUHSD students earned college credit through articulated EUHSD classes during the last school year.
Several new CTE classes were introduced to students this school year, including Agriculture Business, Advanced Podcasting, Advanced Multimedia Communications, Wood Innovation and Design, and Manufacturing Innovation in Design, among others.
