Career and Technical Education

Department Chair: Mrs. Monica Bondurant

Most courses in Career and Technical Education fulfill the 1 credit of Practical Arts required for graduation. Many students earn beyond this requirement. Extra credits earned in this curriculum will help to fulfill the elective credits requirement.

Students taking business courses have the opportunity to qualify for the vocational Florida Gold Seal Scholarship. Completing a program with a B+ (3.5) GPA, a core GPA of 3.0, and an ACT score of 18 in reading, 17 in English and 19 in math subtests, may earn a scholarship that will pay 75% of college tuition at a post-secondary institution in Florida. Skills learned in business courses help prepare students for college, as well as, the world of work. Industry certification is available through our Multimedia Institute.
