||Orem High School Academic Programs and Options
CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Career and Technical Education (CTE) creates pathways to success for every secondary student by providing him or her with the technical skills and academic knowledge needed to prepare for future employment and/or
a successful transition to post-secondary education.
CTE provides students with technical training to prepare for a successful career. The structured training each student receives gives him or her the tools needed to be successful in a job after high school and/or further
his or her post-secondary education, whether technical school, two-year college, or four-year college. Each student is encouraged to explore various areas of study and to develop the essential skills to enter today’s
competitive job market with confidence. See a list of CTE Programs.
