Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE)  is preparing Ware County's students for their next step after high school----college, beginning a career, registered apprenticeships, or the military. Ware County High School offers 14 different pathways to prepare students for what is beyond high school graduation.

Our CTAE teachers build partnerships with industry and higher education to ensure students have the skills they need to thrive in the future workforce. Through CTAE, students discover the relevance of education and are given the opportunity to apply academic knowledge through hands-on learning activities in state-of-the-art facilities that meet the industry standards for each pathway area. In addition to the programs at Ware County High School, both middle schools in Ware County offer CTAE connections classes that expose
younger students to the many career opportunities that are available.

We hope that you will take some time to explore the many ways that our system's CTAE programs are "making education work"!

CTSO's are co-curricular organizations with leadership programs and competitive events which reflect current curriculum standards and competencies for the instructional programs they serve. Teachers infuse the CTSO's activities into the instructional activities, thereby helping students see the real world value of their academic studies. CTSO's are not clubs, but are organizations for the students enrolled in CTAE pathways. Our CTSO's have achieved great success on the local, regional, state, and national levels. Ware
