At Temple High School, Career and Technical Education (CTE) gives high school students the chance to get a head start on preparing for college and in-demand certifications for jobs in Bell County and throughout the country.  In CTE programs you will learn how core school subjects are used in real-life.  As a CTE student you have the opportunity to participate in hands-on training in your chosen program and gain real world experience through job shadows and internships. Career and Technical Education programs enable students to gain entry-level employment in a high-skill, high-wage job and/or to continue their education. Many of the programs offered at Temple High School provide students with the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications and licensures that prepare them to begin working at entry-level and above positions. Many students use the skills learned in CTE programs to attain positions that will allow them to finance their postsecondary education.
