Career and Technical Education (CTE): A variety of subjects and programs are available in these vocational-technical areas: Agriculture Education, Business and Marketing Education, Family and Consumer Science, Health Sciences, Military Science, Skilled and Technical Sciences, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Juniors and Seniors may also pursue Career and Technical education course offerings through the WWPS SEATech program and the WWCC Running Start program. Vocational Technical courses at Walla Walla High School can enhance both post high school educational pursuits and life long career objectives.
Career & Technical Education Courses
Dual Credit Courses: There are several courses, in specific Career and Technical Education classes, where a student can earn both high school and college credit at the same time. These courses are indicated throughout this course catalog as “Dual Credit” courses. Students who complete the courses with a grade of “B” or better and meet the requirements of the articulated course from the college granting the credit can earn Community/Technical college credit. See pages 15-26 for Dual Credit opportunities at Walla Walla High School, Walla Walla Community College and other colleges. Fees may apply.
CTE TWO for ONE Policy: Students who take CTE equivalent courses will satisfy two graduation requirements while earning one credit for a single year long course; hence, “two for one”. The purpose of this policy is to create flexibility for students to choose more elective courses or to address other graduation requirements.
