What is Career Technical Education?
Career decision making and development are crucial to our students and for the future of our workforce. The reality is most high school students' career planning is unintentional and uninformed. The Grossmont Union High School District is creating connections between what students learn at school and what they need to know and do in the workplace. This concept is called Career Technical Education and the goal is to prepare students for both college and work. El Cajon Valley High School has four pathways for the 2016-2017 school year.

Arts, Media, and Entertainment

In the Arts, Media & Entertainment Pathway students take Multimedia, Photography, and TV, Film and Digital Media. Students will develop skills in a project based course of study and will learn about the careers where these skills can be applied.
