Silicon Valley Career Technical Education 

SVCTE educates eligible high school students for success in careers and college in a professional, hands-on environment. Courses are offered within 11 industry sectors where students can explore and develop technical skills that will lead them to higher education or into the workplace. 
SVCTE courses are yearlong classes available to 11th and 12th-grade students. Check out their website to read the course descriptions for each class. If you're interested in finding out whether the class meets an A-G requirement, please view their College & Career Planning webpage.  
**Please note that if you intend to participate in after school sports next year, you may want to 
consider an AM class instead of a PM class.
