Mission and Goal

The mission of North Carolina Secondary Career and Technical Education is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy. 

Our goal is to offer programs that are designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of students including basic skills such as reading, writing, mathematics, and science.

CTE is also designed to develop students' ability to work independently, as part of a team, think creatively, solve problems, and utilize technology.
