Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education (CTE) schools prepare students to go directly into work upon graduation. Our 9-14 model school blends a college degree pathway with technical classes and career-readiness activities in order to prepare students for in-demand STEM careers on a ladder of growth in our local energy and utility industry. Our CTE program requires that students:

  • Participate in both high school and college-level technical coursework, such as Introduction to Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Electromechanical Devices and Instrumentation, Computer Electronics, Circuit Analysis, Materials Science, SolidWorks, Statics, Fluid Dynamics, as well as project seminars and tool skills workshops
  • Participate in career-readiness instruction and activities, such as job shadowing, networking events, project teams, and internships
  • Complete an AAS degree—free of cost—and fulfill other Energy Tech requirements, such as community service and a capstone project

Our partners have planned our program backwards from jobs that are fast-growing right here in New York City. We are confident that our graduates will be well prepared for these and other careers, or to continue their studies in four-year programs.
