CTE Pathways, within eight areas, are rigourous programs of study to assure strong academic and technical preparation providing students with critical learning and hands-on skills. Students who focus on a Pathway acquire the skills necessary for entry into well-paid careers with high potential for rapid financial growth, increased levels of responsibility, and a high degree of personal satisfaction.

Pathways will lead a student from secondary education program to a certificated program at Snow College or other higher education institutions in Utah.
