The Career Technical Education (CTE) courses offered by Pearson Online Academy allow students to combine both college preparation and workforce skills development into one customized education program. These courses encourage students to explore and prepare for careers in business, marketing, psychology, criminal justice, medicine, and more.
Students enrolled in our Career Technical Education high school courses gain thorough technical knowledge and skills training, supplemented by a strong academic foundation and real-world experience. Our programs of study are organized by career clusters, which include distinct groupings of occupations and industries based on the knowledge and skills they require. These clusters branch into career pathways to help students narrow their interests further and design an education plan for achieving career goals.
