General Overview

This program will focus on meeting the needs of 10th grade students that are interested in enrolling in a technical program during their junior or senior year. The CTE Academy will provide instruction in Career and Technical Education preparation for future enrollment in one of the Mid-Maine Technical Center’s National or State Certified Programs.
