Career and Technical Education
MPS Online is offering Career & Technical Education for the first time in the 2021-2022 school year. The 2022-2023 CTE Course Catalog for MPS Online will be available soon!
CTE is an educational option that provides learners with the knowledge and skills they need for college, career, and lifelong learning. CTE gives additional purpose to education by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge within a selected career focus. In addition, students will be connected to a variety of career exploration activities which include guest speakers, worksite/company tours, and internships.
The Career & Technical Education program provides context to core academics through integrated, applied and experiential learning with a broad exposure to career fields and a balanced high school experience. This program is one of the four core rigorous programs (AP, IB, CIS, and CTE) offered by Minneapolis Public Schools to support student achievement, reduce dropout rates, and prepare more students to become college and career ready.
