What comes to mind when you think of Career and Technical Education? Most people think of the traditional assembly lines, but today’s business and industry occupations are fast-paced and high tech. Companies, including those in this region are part of a rapidly expanding global economy and they need employees with high-level technical and academic skills to remain competitive. The high demand for people with these skills creates a great opportunity for you! Whether your goal is work or college following high school, Career and Technical Education can prepare you with the academic background, technical ability, and work experience to open the doors to a variety of career opportunities worldwide.

It is assumed that, through your career exploration experiences in the 8th grade, you have chosen a career pathway to explore and are now selecting courses in which you have an interest. This site provides descriptions of courses offered through the Copper Country Intermediate School District’s Career and Technical Education program. It should be noted that the courses described on the following pages are tentative offerings.

Facts about CTE

Any student 15 and 1/2 years or older who attends high school in Baraga, Houghton, or Keweenaw County may attend Career & Technical Education classes offered by the Copper Country Intermediate School District.

Attendance – Students enrolled in classes at the CCISD Career Tech Center are subject to the attendance policies of their own high schools while attending the Tech Center. The limit on the maximum number of absences permitted in order to receive credit is determined by each high school’s policy. For further information, see the Career & Technical Education handbook.

Classes are approximately two hours long and are scheduled at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m.

Programs may provide instruction for one, two, or three years, depending upon the knowledge and skill of individual students and their career goals.

The student’s home school issues credits for successful completion of Career & Technical Education programs.

Adults may enroll in daytime programs when space is available. Call the Copper Country Intermediate School District office for tuition costs.
