Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Career & Technical Education classes and programs provide pathways to employment opportunities, technical certifications and even college Associate and Bachelor degrees through several concurrent enrollment options available to students. One such example is the MHS Home Construction Class, a cooperative Murray City School District/Salt Lake Community College program. The course structure is designed for student participation during three classroom periods each day for the entire school year. A brand new house, called “Spartan House,” is built by this group every other year and sold to any interested buyer.
