Career Technical & Agricultural Education

Career Technical & Agricultural Education prepares students for their next steps after high school, whether that be college, to begin a career, enter an apprenticeship opportunity, or enter a branch of our nation's military. Bulloch County Schools provides Career Technical & Agricultural Education career pathway courses developed by the state of Georgia and the Educating Georgia's Future Workforce initiative, which leverages partnerships with industry and higher education to ensure students have the skills they need to thrive in the future workforce. Georgia's Career Technical & Agricultural Education program offers students more than 130 career pathway options within 17 different career clusters.  Bulloch County Schools offers these career pathways and their accompanying technical student organizations.

Career Exploration

Career Technical & Agricultural Education allows students to explore a range of career options for their future, both inside and outside the classroom.

  • Students can start their path toward a career that they are passionate about, while learning valuable experience, college credits and more.
  • Students are more likely to remain in high school and develop a post-high school plan, including college, than other students.
  • Nearly 100 percent of high school students who participate in career pathway courses graduate high school and know what they want to do after high school.  
Real-world skills

Career Technical & Agricultural Education allows students to develop real-world skills and national industry certifications that are applicable to high-demand career fields.

  • Career pathway courses provide a unique opportunity for hands-on learning that put students at the center of the action.
  • Career pathway courses provide the skills and confidence students need to pursue career options, discover their passions and get on a path to success.
  • Students in career pathway courses and their parents are three times as likely to report that they are “very satisfied” with their own or their children’s ability to learn real-world skills as part of their current education compared to parents and students not involved in a career pathway.
