Learning for the 21st century

By combining rigorous academics with career preparation across the 15 Industry Sectors, our county-wide consortium creates work-based learning opportunities for students and empowers educators with 21st-century learning strategies.

Career Technical Education

Career Technical Education (CTE) is a program of study that involves a multiyear sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.

Success through collaboration

In order to adapt to the ever-evolving world of work, we are developing and cultivating an ongoing county-wide collaborative effort that guarantees every Orange County student the support they need to prepare for college and achieve success in their career field.
