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.
