Dr. Steve Hurdle, Director of College and Career Readiness, said, “Our CTE pathway programs offer students the ability to interact in real-world work experiences, and it’s important that they have hands-on learning opportunities with the tools and equipment used in their industry of study. Donations like Milwaukee’s expand our ability to ensure students are well prepared for high-demand careers.”

The CTE program is part of the College and Career Readiness department. The CTE program has twelve pathway courses and six enhancement courses.
