RTSD Celebrates Career and Technical Education Month
Radnor Township School District celebrated Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in February, highlighting students participating in the program during the 2021-22 school year.
"It interested me that I could learn an actual profession rather than having a traditional high school experience," Dental Occupations student Angela Guillen-Vale said of her CTE program. "They assimilate real-life situations in the classroom."
Radnor High School offers CTE programs through Delaware County Technical Schools (DCTS) and Technical College High School (TCHS). Each course is an extension of the RHS program and elective credits towards graduation are awarded upon completion.
"It's cool to have a different environment during the day where I can specifically learn and practice things that have value to what I want to do as a career," said Emergency and Protective Services student Daniel Bare.
A total of thirty-nine RHS students are enrolled in a Career and Technical Education program during the 2021-22 school year and participate in 12 different programs.
"I would recommend this program, because you will have a great time meeting students from other schools and learn so much about different areas of Cosmetology," William Chavez-Lopez said of his program.
"I have learned so many different things that I am going to carry with me into my [future] career," Dental Occupations student Aaliyah Echevarria-Dorch said. "I strongly feel that other students will be able to learn as much as I have."
