Students leave the Stanwood Career & Technical Education (CTE) Programs with marketable employability skills and levels of academic qualifications which allow them to choose among high-demand careers or pursue additional education and training. 

Our CTE mission is to prepare all learners for successful roles in families, careers and communities.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses provide a variety of opportunities for students to explore their career interests while developing academic, technical, leadership, and practical skills in areas that are highly relevant to students and highly valued by employers and colleges in our region. Many of these courses are articulated with local college programs and provide college credit at no cost. In addition, CTE courses provide students:
