Career AND Technical education

White County High School Career and Technical Education logo


The mission of White County High School is to create and maintain a secure and safe environment for student learning in all academic and career technical areas, which will assist students to meet all federal, state, and local standards as well as lead to fulfilling adult lives in a progressive and sophisticated world.


CTE does more than simply prepare students for careers, it provides students with an opportunity to develop specific academic, intellectual, technical, and 21st-century skills necessary to be successful in their career and in life. In pursuit of ensuring every student in Tennessee achieves this level of success, we begin with rigorous course standards which feed into intentionally designed programs of study. Students engage in industry-relevant content through general education integration and experiences such as career & technical student organizations (CTSO), early postsecondary opportunities (EPSO), work-based learning (WBL), and industry certification. Through these experiences, students are immersed with industry-standard content and technology, solve industry-based problems, meaningfully interact with industry professionals and use/produce industry-specific, informational texts. CTE gives students the necessary tools to be successful on the path to postsecondary success.
