The mission of Career Technical Education (CTE) is to ensure that every citizen of New Hampshire graduates from high school, college and career ready.

CTE helps students gain the skills, technical knowledge, academic foundation and real-world experience they need to prepare for high-skill, high-demand, high-wage careers. CTE is organized by a national framework called Career Clusters, which presents a complete range of related career options to students of all ages, helps them discover their interests and passions, and empowers them to choose the educational pathway that can lead to success in high school, college and their chosen career.
