Why is it important for students to view these
CTE programs before high school?
  • Students more than ever are coming to high school
    equipped with information about what career area
    they will likely go into (thanks to the KUDER
    assessments that they are completing in 7th 8th
    grade).
  • Being able to explore their career clusters while
    still in high school is very important for
    todays student.
  • (For example, students that indicate strong
    interest (or aptitude) in health sciences, may
    choose to start taking some Health Sciences
    classes in high school. This might allow them
    to pinpoint a specific medical profession and
    will drastically increase the chance of them
    going on to college to complete a program or
    learn a trade/skill in the field.)
