College, Career and Technical Education

Franklin High School is committed to offering students a variety of educational options to complement their core curriculum. With ten different programs of study, our comprehensive College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) program encourages students to take advantage of and explore their individual strengths and how they may align with a rewarding career. CCTE courses can be taken to fulfill the focus area for graduation requirements or as electives. These programs help students not only learn skills in specific subject areas but also teach leadership and teamwork.

Why Take CCTE Courses?

College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) gives high school students the chance to get a head start in preparation for college and careers. In CCTE programs students learn how core school subjects like math, science and writing are used in real-life and practical situations. CCTE courses allow students to meet the graduation requirement for an elective focus area by taking three to four courses within a chosen program of study.
