Career & Technical Education

What is CTE?

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) program provides occupational training to over 1,000 secondary students and adults at the three Career and Technical Education Centers.
There are currently 16 different CTE programs available at the three centers. The administration and staff of the CTE programs, utilizing input from component schools, industry, and the public, strive to provide relevant career and college preparation to secondary students and adult residents of SLL BOCES region. In addition, many articulation agreements and dual enrollment agreements between colleges, in and out of state, and the St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES are in effect to grant academic credit to CTE Center graduates.
