Mission Statement

The Whitney High School Career and Technical Education Pathways offer students a unique perspective into a field of study that they might want to pursue upon their graduation from Whitney.
The classes listed below adhere to the CTE guidelines set forth by the California Department of Education.
Students completing the pathway will have the opportunity to achieve specific competencies in that area of study, earn a program certificate and/or pre-apprenticeship certification, develop an industry specific portfolio, display a special graduation cord, obtain an internship with a local business or on campus, travel to conferences and/or competitions, receive college credit (dual enrollment) in some classes, and establish a professional on-line presence. No matter what your future holds (four year college, junior college, trade school, or career), set yourself apart from the crowd and take part in the Whitney CTE pathways.
