WCS College, Career and Technical Education

Williamson County Schools (WCS) is committed to offering students a wide variety of educational options to compliment their core curriculum through a comprehensive College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) program of study. WCS encourages students to take advantage of nearly 40 different programs of study to explore their individual strengths and how they may align those strengths with a rewarding career.

WCS CCTE students enroll in one or two courses each year while taking the most rigorous core academic course load they can manage. The advantage of taking CCTE courses is that students are able to get a look at the world of work and careers while still in high school. Students are able to then make informed decisions about post-secondary programs and the credentials needed for the jobs they desire.

WCS CCTE courses combine a rigorous classroom experience with the relevancy of real world application. Classes consist of cutting edge equipment, shadowing/internships, guest speakers, business practicums, and many are available for college credit. The WCS program of study document link below displays the 16 career clusters offered in WCS. The specific programs of study, sequence of courses, and specific schools offering each program of study are listed individually under each career cluster. Students wanting a specific CCTE program of Study not offered at their zoned school may have the option of attending a school out of their zone if seats are available. Students should see their Counselor for more information.
