    What Modern CTE Looks Like

    College or Career?
    Give your Students the Opportunity to Choose Both.

    The Advanced Career (AC) program is part of the High Schools That Work Initiative, supported by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). AC fuses a rigorous and relevant blend of technical and academic skills in authentic projects. These courses give students a greater depth of knowledge and skills — and prepare them for more options after they graduate.
