Clara Barton High School is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) School. We have programs in Dental Assistant, Dental Lab Technology, Medical Assistant, Nursing Assistant, Practical Nursing, and Vision Technology. These programs prepare students for entry-level positions in the workforce and/or foundational skills for further programs at two and four-year colleges.

A CTE program of study is a two-four year formalized program of study in a specific industry area that prepares high school students for seamless transition into two-year or four-year college programs and/or entry level jobs. Students in a CTE Program fulfill rigorous and integrated instruction of academic and industry-specific content as well as work-based learning experiences like internships. By completing a CTE Program of Study, students not only receive their High School Regents Diploma but also have an opportunity to pass an industry-recognized certification or licensing examinations that lead to credentials, as evidence of their college and career readiness.
