February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in recognition of the value of CTE programs in a student’s educational experience and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country. Brazosport ISD is proud of our expansive CTE programs that support student future-readiness with courses providing clear direction to pursue high-demand, post-secondary opportunities, whether that be a college education, joining the military, or entering the workforce.

“We are excited to offer our students over 100 career opportunities at BISD. This gives them the chance to identify what CTE courses match the career interests they may have,” said Superintendent Danny Massey. “It is very satisfying to know that students are able to choose courses that match their interest, and what they are passionate about.”

BISD’s CTE programs offer a sequence of courses that align with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills, and range from classroom learning to certification programs to work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom to participation in student leadership organizations. CTE allows students to use academic knowledge and problem-solving skills while acquiring occupationally-specific skills as part of their high school curriculum. BISD high school students can choose from CTE course pathways like welding, construction technology, health sciences, culinary arts, agricultural sciences, audio/video, graphic design, engineering, business, education and training and information technology. The full listing of CTE programs of study, pathways and course offerings is available online in the BISD CTE Exploration Guide.

Students enrolled in our CTE programs can leave high school with:

  • valuable technical dual credit,
  • industry-based certifications and licensures,
  • participation in resume-building student leadership organizations, and
  • the ability to directly enter the workforce.

In August of 2021, Brazosport ISD opened its doors to our state of the art 91,000 square feet Career & Technical Education (CTE) Center at Brazoswood High School. Part of the passage of the 2019 bond, the multilevel CTE Center provides a valuable education to CTE students. Students are able to enhance their skills and knowledge in a wide range of different courses that will prepare them for numerous career opportunities.

Brazosport ISD is proud to provide relevant and inspiring course opportunities through CTE which produce future-ready graduates and the ability for our students to follow their individual hopes and dreams.
