Career and Technical Education
Prospective students must apply for a CTE or Career Studies program through their home school counseling office. The SchoolTool portal will be open for home school counselors to complete the student intake process in mid-February. Home schools are notified by May 2nd on the status of a student’s intake into their program of interest.
Students are asked to visit our programs and complete an interest form, which should be returned to their home school counselor. Accepted students are invited to a Parent and Student Orientation Program designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the CTE or Career Studies program the student will enter in September.
- Parent-Student Form
- Automotive/NATEF Form (Columbia-Greene Educational Center)
- Automotive/NATEF Form (Rensselaer Educational Center)
Schools must submit required documentation to Questar III for each new student enrolled in the program prior to the program start.
Did you know?
As a result of input from our school districts, a Career and Technical Education (CTE) intake process was implemented that was designed to help reduce the number of students coming into CTE programs not ready for the rigor of each program, and to help make sure that students developed a better understanding of program content and expectations.
Data collected has shown that the intake process is resulting in fewer students switching programs, a better match of students entering CTE programs, and more students completing programs.
