Your child can be college AND career ready upon graduation from high school!

  • Going to college AND preparing for a career doesn’t have to be “either/or.”
  • Lodi Unified School District high school students can enroll in a wide variety of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses.
  • Eighteen of these courses are articulated with San Joaquin Delta College, which means students can earn college credit while taking a high school CTE course without ever actually attending Delta College.
  • Students with college credit are given earlier college registration times than those without college credit.
  • Having a college transcript as a high school graduate shows colleges and universities that students can perform college-level work.
  • CTE courses provide opportunities for students to experience relevant, hands-on experience in a host of careers while still in high school.
  • CTE courses also provide opportunities for students to experience relevant, hands-on experience in a host of careers before investing thousands of dollars and four years in a college major.
  • Some CTE courses provide industry certification in viable local industries.
  • Many CTE courses prepare students for certification exams.
  • All CTE courses help students develop transferable life and workplace skills that apply to college and careers.
