CTE Career and Technical Education

Mt. Carmel High School hosts a number of different Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathway opportunities for students.  Our goal is to provide a rich college and career exploration student experience to complement the core courses that students take at each grade level.  The pathway courses are also open to all students who are interested in taking elective courses in these areas.  Students from other Poway Unified school sites are welcome to take courses in our Fire Science and Automotive Technology programs also.  Mt. Carmel is the only high school that hosts a Fire Science program within our school district.  Also, we have the only high school Automotive center in Poway Unified on the west side of Interstate 15.  In our trimester system, students have more ability than on a semester system to take a variety of elective course during their four years in high school.  Mt. Carmel and Poway Unified offer pathways outlined by the California Department of Education CTE Model Curriculum Standards
Arts Media and Entertainment Pathways: Engineering and Architecture Pathway Health Science & Medical Technology Pathways: Information and Communication Technologies Pathway Public Services Pathways: Transportation Pathway
