CTE Academy Mission: "To educate and prepare students for future success through specialized, relevant, career-oriented learning."

The Sioux Falls Career & Technical Education Academy would like to extend an invitation to ALL students, parents, community members and business owners to tour the facility and learn about the exciting opportunities available to students in the local area. Visitors will view our state of the art facility & lab equipment and have time to visit with instructors and counselors to learn more about our various courses and programs.

This is your opportunity to see what the CTE Academy is all about; regardless if you have taken a class here, plan to take a class here, or are just curious about what is offered here. CTE Academy staff and students will be available to share program information and showcase the projects they are currently working on. Many sponsors and post-secondary representatives will be present to visit with students and parents. The CTE Academy has something exciting for everyone - from the traditional hands-on classes to the college prep Project Lead the Way courses.
