CTE Advanced Studies

This culminating course is for juniors and seniors who have earned two technical credits, one of
which is a completer course, in one Career Cluster. The Advanced Studies course must
augment the content of the completer course and prepare students for success in transitioning
to postsecondary education and future careers. Students work under the guidance of a teacher
with expertise in the content of the completer course in collaboration with community members,
business representatives, and other school-based personnel. The four parts of the course
include writing a research paper, producing a product, developing a portfolio, and delivering a
presentation. Students demonstrate their abilities to use 21st century skills. DECA (an
association for Marketing Education students), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA),
FFA, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Health Occupations
Students of America (HOSA), SkillsUSA, and Technology Student Association (TSA)
competitive events, community service, and leadership activities provide the opportunity to
apply essential standards and workplace readiness skills through authentic experiences.
