CTE Month: QCUSD Programs to Help Students Find Their Path

Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes are available at each high school within Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) giving students the opportunity to develop skills and earn certificates to help them after graduation. Paired with these classes are additional resources to help students explore career options and further their understanding of what is available to them. 

Hanging in the hallways of each high school and on their CTE web pages are career tree posters. Each poster shows a range of jobs students can earn in that specific area. The jobs are broken down into areas of no degree, a bachelor's degree, or advanced degree/education. These posters paint a picture of the real-world potential careers for our students.

Every QCUSD high school student also utilizes MajorClarity, a site that helps guide students through academic planning and post-secondary decision-making.

This is a hands-on discovery and learning process for students. These career “test-drives” offer students interactive and visual content to explore career paths in a truly one-of-a-kind way. Activities are personalized to a student’s interests according to an assessment of personality and learning styles.

Queen Creek High School College and Career Advisor Kenneth Peterson says the program helps open students’ eyes to plan for their future. 

“The site offers learning assessments and interviews with each career cluster the student looks into,” said Peterson. “Students can learn from a professional what they do on a daily basis, pros and cons of their job, and what education they take.”
