High School Program of Studies
Charlottesville Albmarle Technical Education Center (CATEC) High School programs are currently offered at CATEC's main campus and at satellite campuses, with transportation to and from base school provided. Classes are available to Albemarle County and Charlottesville City Public School students free of charge.
We offer 12 programs wherein students have opportunities to practice hands-on and work-based learning activities alongside academically-driven curricula that prepare students for entering the workforce and continuing their educations. Students have opportunities to enrich their academic learning by participating in work-based experiences that include job shadows, internships, and apprenticeships.
Students who attend and complete CATEC programs have the opportunity to receive recognized certifications or credentials in their industry and earn high school elective credits. Students completing select CATEC programs receive, on average, 11 dual-enrollment college credits from local community colleges.
Additionally, each CATEC program integrates career preparation through its workplace readiness skills curriculum, providing students with professional development designed to help them enter the workforce as professionals.
