Every year, students and organizations around the country celebrate what’s known as Career and Technical Education or CTE, for short.  CTE is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health-care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more.

Around the Reef, CTE month is celebrated in full extravagance. Student organizations such as Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) hold week-long events every year to raise awareness and to expand the scope of CTE education around the school.

Coral Reef, as a nationally ranked, magnet school of America, is leading the front towards Career and Technical Education in Miami. With five of the six academies committed to CTE, students around campus can be found learning the techniques and skills necessary to be successful in the future.

Nationally, CTE is a common discussion in the political atmosphere. Policy makers and lobbyists are pushing the envelope on CTE education; budget shifts and changes are rapidly occurring. As the demand for career and technical preparation rises, educational development we see as students within our schools increases as well.

Overall, February is a busy time around The Reef. Take time to enjoy the festivities and events that are occurring throughout the month. Next time you pass the Cuda Credit Union or Blood Drive, remember, you’re seeing CTE in action!
