Career and Technical Education

Students who complete career and technical education programs are better prepared to make informed college and career decisions thanks to the real-world experiences they have in high school.

Apparel Tech Design

Want to learn about fashion design, being a stylist, merchandising and buying, journalism and directing? The Fashion Program offers students the opportunity to develop awareness of the wide range of career opportunities in fashion. Students learn concepts such as garment design and prototype development. An important goal of the program is to prepare students with entry-level job skills, and/or prepare them to gain acceptance into a fashion college. They will be assisted in preparing portfolios that are required, as part of the entrance requirement into a college fashion design program. They learn Color Theory, Fashion Illustration, Computers in Fashion, and have the opportunity to design and construct original garments.
