Here are five reasons you’ll definitely want to try CTE courses and clubs at FLVS, whether you’re ready to adult… Or not.

1. You Can Connect Directly with Industry Experts

Ever wonder what it’s like to work as a video game developer? Or what life is like as an Executive Chef? With CTE courses, you’ll not only explore career paths and jobs, but also learn directly from industry experts. Our CTE courses are both taught by and created in partnership with industry experts and leaders—so you learn and connect with the pros.

2. You Can Earn Money for College

CTE courses have plenty of benefits for students who want to go to college before they jump into their careers. In fact, Florida students who complete a CTE Program of Study can have up to 25% of their college tuition covered at a Florida public college or university through the Bright Future Scholarship Gold Seal Scholarship program. Connect with your school counselor to learn more about the qualifications!

3. You Can Meet New People, Make New Friends

Learn, grow, and explore your future career path with your bestie right by your side! You can learn about new industries or continue to build on the CTE courses you’re already taking with CTE clubs like Coding Club, Future Business Leaders of America, and the TV Production Club.

4. You can Take Part in the Ultimate CTE Flex: Industry Certifications

With CTE courses not only do you earn credits towards your GPA and diploma, but you can also walk away with industry certifications. Industry certifications are proof that you’ve mastered the material and can increase employability. Some colleges and universities also allow students to apply their industry certifications towards your college credits—meaning you can save time and money in the future.

5. Get Skills for College, Career, & Life

From interview and networking tips to time management and group collaboration skills. Our CTE courses help you build the skills you need for the classroom. And beyond. It’s a win-win!
