Career and Technical Education Update – October 2017

This summer was extremely productive in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department.  Over 100 rising seniors completed summer internships related to their academy focus.  CTE also supported 11 non-career academy internships through business partners.  A big thank you to the teachers who came in over the summer to help pave the way for a smooth school year ahead.

Congratulations to the following schools for their summer accomplishments:

  • PVHS Academy of International Business & Marketing sent 13 students in June to the FL Business Leaders of America national competition in Anaheim, CA.
  • SAHS St. Johns County Aerospace Academy sent five students from June 22 – 24 to the Technology Student Association national competition in Anaheim, CA.  The team came in 8th place in Video Game Design.
  • CHS Academy of Emerging Technology sent students to compete at the Future Business Leaders of America National conference in Anaheim, CA in June.  Students received 2nd in Management Information Systems, 4th in Network Design and  6th place in Public Speaking out of 13,000 competitors.

With the school year in motion, we turn our attention to the classroom as well as our business and advisory meetings.  Each Career Academy has a Business Advisory Board that meets four times per year.  Those meetings have begun, and we are looking forward to working with our students, teachers and community to make our programs the best in the country!
