At South Tech...

AT SOUTH TECH . . . We provide students with Career and Technical Education (CTE) that prepares them for continuing education and the workforce.

Our 25, tuition-free, CTE majors allow students to explore their career interests while earning industry certifications, college and high school credit, and skills that will last a lifetime.

Partial day schedules keep students engaged in their home high school academics and activities while they make new friends with similar interests from all over South and West County.

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are an integral part of Career and Technical Education. CTSOs prepare students to become productive leaders in their communities, help them build confidence and increase their ability to solve real-world problems.
