Career, Technical and Adult Education


Philosophy and Mission


The philosophy of Career, Technical and Adult Education (CTAE) is to link education and career skills for the creation of lifelong learning opportunities. We serve the career and technical education needs of students of all ages residing in Arlington.
The CTAE office coordinates and provides educational services along a continuum that begins with awareness building, provides ongoing opportunities to voice its needs, and provides access to educational programs that empower students to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to manage change and succeed in a diverse technological society.
We emphasize awareness building for elementary and middle school students and basic and advanced skills instruction for high school students and adults. Instructional opportunities are available to Arlington residents of all ages and educational backgrounds.
