Each year, PCCS offers Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs at Canton, Salem and Plymouth High Schools. These programs are designed to prepare youth for a broad range of employment and training services and are offered under the guidance of certified teachers, counselors and cooperative education teachers. 

All career and technical education programs follow the district’s policies of nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, gender, age, disability, height, weight or marital status in all programs, activities and employment. In addition, arrangements can be made to ensure that the lack of English language skills is not a barrier to admission or participation.

Many CTE programs at the Park meet the Michigan Merit Curriculum requirements for Visual, Performing, and Applied Arts, and/or Applied Mathematics. Most CTE programs have articulation agreements with local colleges and universities.
