DPSCD’s Breithaupt Career and Technical Center to Showcase Programs

CTE schools demonstrate career-readiness through cooking, designing, building and more

Community members are invited to see how Detroit Public Schools Community District prepares students for a wide-range of technical careers at its CTE Fair from 5-7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 24, 2017 at Breithaupt Career and Technical Center.

At the fair, DPSCD students will showcase 16 Career and Technical Education program offerings including automotive services, culinary arts, firefighting, graphic design and radio and television production. Students enrolled in CTE programs receive training and instruction using the latest industry technology like 3D printers, drones and more. The district offers four Career and Technical Centers to prepare students for college and career pathways.

“This is an opportunity for our community to see first-hand how our Career and Technical Centers provide training and certifications in a number of fields that prepare our students for life,” said DPSCD Board of Education member Dr. Deborah Hunter-Harvill. “We have a student who received his pilot’s license before the age of 16. We also have student chefs heading to Washington, D.C. for a national cooking competition. These CTE programs prepared them for these experiences.”

The program will include a self-guided tour of the atrium allowing the community and Board of Education Academic Sub-Committee to peruse the amazing opportunities students have to get college and career ready.

The following CTE programs will be represented:

  • Automotive services
