CTE Pathways

Ojai Unified School District offers a wide range of Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways.  These courses offer students the opportunity to develop industry-specific skills and explore careers in a supportive, educational setting.  At the high school level, students are given the opportunity to broaden their understanding by applying for work-based learning experiences. Students who complete a minimum of 300 hours of coursework / 2 years within a specific pathway in high school are considered pathway completers for the California State Accountability Dashboard and reflect the growing emphasis on preparation for college and careers.
