Students accepted into Ralph R. McKee High School will be enrolled in one of our dynamic Career and Technical Education programs beginning their sophomore year. Informed by an in-depth year-long exploration of all of our CTE programs over the course of their freshmen year, students will indicate their preference of coursework in one of the following programs: Digital Media & Design, Game Design & Coding, Electrical Installation, Architectural Drafting, Carpentry & Building Trades, Audio Engineering, Graphic Design, and Automotive. Each CTE program requires students to complete 12 credits over the course of their sophomore, junior and senior year. Additionally, students will be eligible for area-specific certifications through industry assessments (recognized by all major companies) and 54 hours of Work Based Learning experiences making them top candidates for employment upon graduation.
