Career Technical Education Capstone Programs and CTE Completers 


Career Technical Education (CTE) is defined by the California Department of Education as "a program of study that involves multiyear sequence courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers."

CTE programs are an important part of Encore's overall program to meet new requirements outlined in Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP).  The CDE recognizes that CTE programs are a "critical component for broad and deep school curriculum that helps prepare all students to be career and college ready."

"CTE practitioners and experts concur that the discipline provides relevance and real world content for academic studies while promoting teamwork and cooperative learning. It builds teacher, counselor, parent, business, and community engagement.

It also encourages students to see a high school diploma and readiness for college or other postsecondary study as a foundation for the future rather than as an end in and of itself." (

Encore offers a wide variety of CTE programs through the intensive arts training offered on campus.  In general, students will complete 2 to 3 classes in a sequence to become a CTE Completer.  In the 20/21 school year, students completing a CTE program will be recognized with a letter for their letterman's jacket and with a certificate.
