Frequently Asked Questions
CTE students will take introductory classes and all core classes at their home campus and then take advanced courses at the HCTE Center or their home campus. When students select a Program of Study (POS), they are not selecting a college major or making a life-long commitment to a specific occupation. Selecting a POS is allowing a student the opportunity to explore a variety of careers. Programs of Study do not eliminate the student from participating in any co-curricular activities such as athletics, fine arts or similar courses.
