CTAE Pathways

Career pathways are state-approved, career-enhancement programs defined as a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses usually commencing in the ninth grade and leading to a baccalaureate degree, an associates degree, and/or an industry-recognized certificate or licensure.

Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) provides all Georgia students with the opportunity to select at least three sequenced electives in a career pathway, along with recommended academic course work, to prepare them to continue their education at any level or enter the workforce.

Selection of a pathway will be based on self-awareness and the investigation of occupations, plus related educational levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still do require education beyond high school. Implementation of career pathways is a collaborative effort between Gainesville City Schools, the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia.
