Career & Technology Education

The purpose of our Career and Technology Education (CTE) Department is to empower and prepare our students with the practical skills, knowledge, and real-world experiences necessary to thrive in an ever-evolving job market and contribute to the well-being of our rural community. We are committed to fostering a dynamic learning environment that combines academic excellence with hands-on, industry-relevant training, enabling our students to explore diverse career pathways, discover their passions, and emerge as competent, confident, and resourceful individuals.

In alignment with our high school's mission and values, the Career and Technology Education Department at RLOA is dedicated to providing an educational experience that equips our students with the skills, confidence, and determination to chart their own pathways toward a prosperous future, uplift their families, and enrich our community. Together, we build a brighter tomorrow through education, opportunity, and empowerment.
