High School Academies, CTE Pathways and Programs

IPS is proud to offer Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways in several of our high schools.  Through an extensive redesign of programs, students can now choose their high school based on their interest and the programs offered at a particular school, instead of being locked into attending a high school based on where they live within the district.

Through the redesign, our high schools have incorporated specific College and Career Academies, which include a defined sequence of courses, leading to an industry recognized certification, dual credit and/or opportunities for students to participate in work-based learning experiences throughout Grades 9-12.

These experiences are being supported by surrounding businesses and industries within the community. The partnerships are vital components and assist IPS in providing dynamic, high quality CTE programs to students.
