Career-Technical Education

  • Turn an Interest into a Career

    Career Technical Education Logo Whether you're interested in a career in Advanced Manufacturing, Construction, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Education, Health, Information Technology, Media Arts, Performing Arts, Public Safety, or Visual Arts, Columbus City Schools offers dozens of Career-Technical Programs to meet your needs.


  • Career-Technical Programs are for students who are interested in getting a job immediately following high school graduation or for students who plan to attend college and seek employment after receiving their degree. 

    Information about the programs offered at each of these schools can be found on their individual pages to the left. These centers serve juniors and seniors. Sophomore students interested in applying for classes beginning in their junior year should see their Career and Community Resource Coordinator (CCRC) or Guidance Counselor at their home high school.

    The Columbus City Schools have two state-of-the-art Career-Technical Centers:
