CTEC is a one-of-a-kind premier educational institution located in the heart of the Willamette Valley in Salem, Oregon. CTEC students work side-by-side with industry professionals and core academic teachers to acquire a competitive advantage after high school. Rigorous academic standards are partnered with relevant industry skills to deliver a curriculum that is seamlessly integrated with statewide standards and clearly aligned with high-wage, high-demand career pathways. Students who graduate from CTEC are equipped to pursue their dreams.
CTEC has a Career Services center with a full-time counselor available to meet with students. The center is used to connect students with the next step in pursuing their career goals. CTEC Career Services has the tools and resources necessary to guide and help our students with applications, resumes, interviews, cover letters, etc.
Identifying Career Pathways:
Our desire at CTEC is to focus on graduation, as well as the success of each student for years after they graduate from high school. From the day students arrive at CTEC, they start exploring their career future. They explore the Career Tree for their program and put a leaf on the tree as they envision their future. They work closely with the Career Services Center to identify support needed to achieve their career goals.
