Career & Technical Education

At Work for Tyler!

The Career & Technical Education program serves hundreds of high school students in Tyler ISD.  A wide variety of options allow students to explore career pathways and earn certificates and licensures before they graduate high school.  We partner with local colleges to provide opportunities for students to earn dual credit and get a jump start on their post-secondary plans.

There is something for everyone in Career & Technical Education. We offer course sequences in the following areas:

Accounting, Agriculture, Animation, Architecture, Audio & Video Production, Automotive Technology, Business Management, Construction Technologies & HVAC, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Emergency Fire Response, Engineering, Fashion Design, Finance, Health Science, Graphic Design, Hospitality, Information Technologies, Law Enforcement, Manufacturing, Marketing, Robotics, Sports Medicine, Teaching & Education, Veterinary Science, and Welding & Process Technologies. 

Our programs of study are individualized to meet the needs of every CTE student. 

11th and 12th grade students have the opportunity to complete many CTE pathways taking courses at the Career and Technology Center.
