Career & Technical Education
Career Technical Education (CTE) offers MAPS students the opportunity earn articulated credit through partnerships the district has with WESD, Ferris State, and more. CTE opportunities provide our students with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in their chosen career field.
An average of 50+ Manistee High School students choose CTE training as part of their course study each year.

Congratulations to our CTE students for seeking opportunities to learn about their chosen career fields and getting a jump start on the next steps in their journey!
