Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) opportunities are designed to provide students with authentic learning experiences and develop college and career skills in alignment with academic standards and industry expectations.
A three-course pathway focusing on Web Design debuted in the fall of 2017 at Freehold High School and will expand to a second high school for the 19-20 school year. The Workforce Development Partnership Program has established partnerships with information technology industry experts including Vydia, Wisdom+Craft, and Facebook. These partnerships have supported the integration of cutting-edge, industry-aligned professional development for our staff, as well as opportunities for students to participate in career exploration activities. In addition, the district secured a post-secondary articulation agreement with New Jersey Institute of Technology which offers students in the Web Design Pathway the potential to earn up to three college credits.

These partnerships allow students the opportunity to participate in career exploration activities and job-shadowing structured learning experiences. Also, the district secured a post-secondary articulation agreement with Rutgers University which offers students in the Health Professions Pathway the potential to earn up to nine college credits.
