NOW: Niles HS Highlights CTE Programs during National CTE Month


NILES, Mich. -- February is National CTE Month! It’s a month to celebrate the value of Careers in Technical Education courses and the achievements of students and teachers in those programs.

Students at Niles High School can choose from 9 different CTE programs: Ag Food and Natural Resources, Automotive Technology, Graphic Arts, Health Sciences, Culinary Arts, Business and Marketing.

Paired with the classes are 3 CTE student organizations: F.F.A for students studying agriculture, B.P.A for business students and H.O.S.A for health science students.

Students also have the opportunity to go off campus to other districts in the county for programs Niles HS may not offer.

All students are able to earn post-secondary credentials or college credit for the courses to help further them in their careers once they graduate.

CTE Director at Niles High School, Carrie George, says the programs are a great way for students to “explore career areas and learn maybe where their interest lie, what they do enjoy doing and what they don’t”.
