CTE Student Organizations

  • What is a CTSO?

    All Career and Technical Education Programs utilize a delivery system made up of four integral parts: formal/technical instruction, experiential learning, supervised occupational experience, and the Career and Technical Student Organizations. These organizations provide CTE Students with leadership, collaboration, and real-world experiences. Below is the list of opportunities offered to CTE students in the Tempe Union High School District and the related programs.

    Arizona’s Award-Winning CTSOs!

    Over 40,000 students participate in Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO). These organizations develop academic success through applied academics, promote choice and identification of career options, and foster interpersonal skills in teamwork, communications, human relations, and social interactions. They also encourage excellence in scholarship, build character, promote citizenship, volunteerism, and patriotism, endorse cooperation and cooperative attitudes among all people, and provide opportunities for local, state, national, and international travel through internships, camps, and leadership conferences.
