The South & West Washtenaw Consortium provides Career and Technical Education to the school districts of Chelsea, Dexter, Lincoln, Manchester, Milan, and Saline. Open primarily to 11th and 12th grade students, all CTE courses are designed to equip students with entry level skills needed to gain employment, as well as prepare them for post-secondary training and education. Many courses offer certifications that will enable the student to enter the job market at an elevated pay scale. Many CTE classes offer advanced placement college credit and articulate with local community colleges.

South & West Washtenaw Consortium Programs

Career and Technical Education Curriculum

CTE courses are designed to prepare students with entry level and transferable skills and knowledge needed to obtain employment. The student's selection of a career and technical education course in no way would prevent him or her from furthering their education beyond high school. Additional program materials are available in the guidance office or from instructors.

CTE courses are full-year courses, open primarily to juniors and seniors. Enrollments are limited; it is essential that students indicate their desires when considering their schedules for the fall. Interested students must complete an application form that is available from the counselor or any career and technical education instructor. This application must be returned to the guidance office at the time of scheduling in order to be considered for the program.

A committee will screen all applicants; if applications exceed the openings available, acceptance will be based upon career goals, attendance record, teacher recommendation, and graduation date plans. Priority will be given to seniors who will be in class the full year, then juniors.

Students not electing the program by April cannot be guaranteed a slot in the program of their choice. When it is necessary to attend another school to enroll in the program, bus transportation is provided, with the exception of Cosmetology and Auto Technology 2. Course descriptions are below.
