• Career and Technical Education Programs

  • Career and Technical Education Programs are like schools within a school. PGCPS adopted this model based on projected workforce trends and future employment opportunities within the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. All programs of study have strong collaborative relationships with business, industry and post secondary education. Hence, many programs may lead to industry recognized professional certifications and/or licenses. Equally important, some programs enable students to earn college credit while in high school. Programs of study consist of multi-year sequence of course work, career guidance, and work-based learning experiences that enables students to make more informed college and career choices. They also afford students an opportunity to earn college credit, industry certification/licenses, or pre-apprenticeship experience prior to leaving high school.
