Career & Technical Education

Whether students plan to go on to college or enter the workforce, whether they intend to graduate with an Advanced Regents Diploma or a GED, Rockland BOCES Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs offer a wide range of courses to satisfy students’ diverse interests and abilities.

Many Rockland BOCES CTE programs offer students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit simultaneously, thanks to articulation agreements with area colleges. Students can also earn state and national industry certifications, and a Career and Technical Endorsement on a high school diploma. CTEC's Class of 2014 earned $1.5 million in scholarships and awards; 65 completers also attained industry certification.

And CTE programs help students gain employability skills — such as problem-solving, teamwork and leadership — to help them grow and succeed throughout the course of their careers.

Training takes place in state-of-the-art shops and classrooms through internships and competitions. Instructors are industry experts.

When they complete their studies, Rockland BOCES CTE students are ready to take what they’ve learned to the next level, whether they continue their education at a two- or four-year college or technical school, or move directly into the workplace.
