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.
Want to learn about eyes and how your vision works? Or the latest styles in eyewear, lenses and contacts that work? Vision Technology is a fast growing, lucrative field with many options and opportunities. The graduates from the program are in high demand. Places of employment (which include doctors’ offices, hospitals and business establishments specializing in eye wear) are always looking for well-trained and qualified individuals. Post-secondary education is another option open to graduates from the program. Just as businesses are looking for qualified individuals, colleges are also in search of students who are interested in studying to become eye-care professionals.
Career and Technical Education programs offer you:
- Classes that teach you skills you will need to be successful in work and life after high school.
- Teachers who have worked in their career areas and who hold industry certifications and professional licenses.
- Opportunities for you to earn industry-recognized certifications that can help you to prepare for internships and jobs while you are still in school.

- School partnerships that help you meet adults who are working in the careers you are interested in learning more about.
