Crossland S.T.A.T., offers students starting in 9th grade, an opportunity to forge career pathways while still in high school. CTE pairs academic knowledge with technical skills to prepare students for in-demand, high-skilled, and high-wage jobs. CTE programs of study provide the opportunity for students to earn industry-recognized certificates and/or licenses, acquire college credit, participate in pre-apprenticeship experiences, and gain work experience. Some CTE graduates choose to enter the workforce immediately after graduation, and some choose to go to a two-year or four-year college, while others go into the military or begin an apprenticeship. Whatever their chosen pathway, students have options immediately after graduation or years later. The CTE Center at Crossland High School, has programs of study that are offered to students residing in the Crossland High School boundary area.
