Career and Technical Department
The mission of Career and Technical Education (CTE) is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy. Our goal is to provide cutting edge curricula for our students thereby ensuring that they exit with high academic and technical skills.
Both school-based and work-based learning opportunities are offered to students enrolled in Career and Technical Education.
School-based opportunities at OHS include competency-based courses in six program areas: Agriculture Education, Business and Information Technology Education, Career Development, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, Health Occupations Education, and Trade and Industrial Education.
Work-based learning opportunities include cooperative education, apprenticeships, internships, job shadowing and supervised occupational experiences.
In addition, Career and Technical Education Student Organizations (CTSO activities) are an integral part of each program. CTSO leadership and competitive events are held on the local, regional, state and national levels.
