Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Blount County School System is committed to offering students a wide variety of educational options to compliment their general education curriculum through a comprehensive career & technical education (CTE) program of study. Blount County Schools encourages students to take advantage of the various programs of study that provide students with the opportunity to explore their individual strengths and how they may align those strengths with a rewarding career or college pathway. Twelve career & technical education courses are considered "honors" classes.
