Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is pleased to offer a robust Career and Technical Education (CTE) program for students. CTE directly prepares students for college and career success! CTE provides elective courses in a sequential pathway focused on a specific industry sector. These courses incorporate math, science, English language arts and CTE state standards. 

The goal of CTE is to provide students with hands-on learning experience that builds teamwork, leadership, creativity, and problem solving skills… all essential skills for employability.
