• CAREER & TECHNICAL EDUCATION ACADEMIES (CTE)

    LaBelle High School offers students the opportunity to participate in Career & Technical Education Academies.  Career academies are small, personalized learning communities within a high school that select a subset of students and teachers for a two, three, or four year span. Students enter the academy through a voluntary process; they must apply and be accepted with parental knowledge and support.

    By design, these three central elements of a career academy lead to a school that is rigorous, relevant, and relational.

     

    Students who participate in a Career Academy and complete the required courses will be given specific opportunities:

    ·    Complete on-the-job internship programs

    ·    Take an industry acknowledged certification test

    ·    Transfer high school credits into a post-secondary program (colleges, universities, or technical schools)

     

    LaBelle High School currently offers the first certified CTE academy in Hendry County, The Allied Health Academy.  Program completers “students” will take the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), the CMAA (Certified Medical Administrative Assistant) exam and/or the State Certified First Responder exam.  CTE academies at LHS are Building Trades and Construction, Web Design, and Plant/Animal Biotechnology. 

    Career & Technical Education Program Completers

    Agriculture, business, construction technology, and health occupations programs will prepare the student for employment in that area or for further post-secondary training.  The Gold Seal Vocational Scholarship requires a 3.0 weighted GPA and a 3.5 unweighted GPA in a minimum of three Career and Technical Education credits in one vocational program
