Welcome to Career & technology Studies

Career and Technology Studies (CTS) allows high school students to explore interests outside of the core courses. Many CTS courses provide skills for students to achieve success in the workplace or in post secondary. Whether it is lifestyle and trade skills such as Foods, Fashion, and Construction; hobby and freelance skills such as Cosmetology, Natural Sciences, and Photography; or technology skills such as Computing Science, Communication Technology, and Design needed for post-secondary, there is something for everyone!
