Since the 1960’s, Stebbins has been providing our students with Career Technical education. While students in other parts of the Miami Valley have to be bussed to their Career Tech Center, our students stay in-house and are provided with rigorous academic and technical programs of study in career pathways. These programs prepare students for a full range of postsecondary opportunities (two and four year colleges), entry level employment, apprenticeships, and the military.
Stebbins Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are designed to help students get ready for a future career. Whether the career requires a university or college degree or other post-secondary education, students are prepared for that career in a hands-on educational environment that simulates the world of work. CTE teachers are required to have industry experience in order to qualify for certification. This means that students are learning from professionals who have worked outside of education and can bring that sense of the “real world” into the classroom.
Our non-traditional classroom settings give our students the opportunity to gain experiences that are relevant to their career field. To emphasize this, Career Technical students annually participate in Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) that give them real-life workforce experiences and preparing them for post-secondary outcomes. Students who participate in CTSO’s also compete against students from around the state in competitions tied directly their career tech program and career field. Students who perform well at the state level can also advance to national level competitions and compete against students from all over the country.
From college credits in high school to learning workplace skills and leadership opportunities, students in CTE programs are gaining skills for success in their future.
Our national and state award winning Career Technology programs, prepare all of our students for 21st century college and career readiness. Our programs are located centrally in our state-of-the-art high school (why leave your home school when we have it all right here?) and serves students in grades 9 through 12. There are 11 programs of study at SHS, including STEM courses. State-of-the-art technology used in business and industry is taught in all program areas. Students at Stebbins have received regional, state, and national recognition for skill and leadership performance. Together, students, parents, and teachers set high expectations for students to achieve academically, technically, and socially.
In addition to STEM based learning, our career technical programs give students the chance to participate in all of the traditional academic and extracurricular opportunities offered at typical high schools. Our state and national award-winning programs offer college credits, industry certifications, and a three thousand dollar scholarship to Sinclair Community College once the student completes a given program.
