    A CTE Career Pathway is sequence of courses in a recognized industry sector aligned with the California Career Technical Education (CTE) Model Curriculum Standards.  Granite Bay HS provides sequenced career pathways that include industry related and academic content standards to prepare students for success in postsecondary education, careers, and lifelong learning.

    What does a Career Pathway offer?
    The Granite Bay High School Career and Technical Education Pathways offer students a unique perspective into a field of study that they might want to pursue upon their graduation from high school. Students completing a Career Pathway will have the opportunity to achieve specific competencies in that area of study, earn a program certificate and/or pre-apprenticeship certification, develop an industry specific portfolio, display a special graduation cord, obtain an internship with a local business or on campus, travel to conferences and/or competitions, receive college credit (dual enrollment) in some classes, and establish a professional on-line presence. Completing a Career Pathway at Granite Bay will be a distinguishing achievement whether you are continuing your education at a four year college, junior college, trade school, or entering a career.
