Career & Technical Education

The Rankin County School District provides multiple career pathway options for high school students including career academies, academic and career technical education programs of study at the high school, and career technical programs of study at the Pearl-Rankin Career Technical Center. High School Career Academies are school-within-a-school, career-based programs of study which integrate rigorous academic and technical courses aligned to provide students the knowledge and skills needed to transition to a post secondary institution or career. Programs follow a sequence of CTE courses, which provide opportunities for students to explore and apply 21st century skills to real-world scenarios. During their senior year students participate in work-based learning and internship experiences related to their career. In addition to CTE career academies, academic and CTE programs of study are offered which provide integration of rigorous academic and technical curricula with real-world relevance.
