Career & Technical Education
Welcome to the Yuma Union High School District’s Career and Technical Education Department.
Our district offers courses in state approved Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. All programs include a coherent sequence of courses leading to student attainment of the state standards in the program. CTE offers exceptional courses with industry-current curricula and state-of-the-art equipment. Upon graduation, students are prepared to transition successfully to postsecondary education and are equipped with the necessary skills to begin working in a specific career.
Many programs offer opportunities for students to earn college credits through dual enrollment while enrolled in CTE classes.
CTE students have opportunities to participate in the Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) that are directly related to their program. DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, Educators Rising, HOSA and SkillsUSA are recognized as integral parts of the CTE programs and provide career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition. In addition, these organizations provide students with the opportunity to compete at the local, regional, state, and national levels.
