Georgia's CTAE programs provide real-world experiences and work-based learning opportunities that prepare students to thrive. In Georgia, students are learning about potential careers early, participating in professional organizations, earning college credit, and learning in the field. Through the Career Pathways Initiative, they're studying everything from energy to finance to human services. And thousands of students are graduating with a Career Pathway certificate and a career plan -- ready and prepared.

It is through experiences that students are able to put academic knowledge to practice. Often, CTAE is the ‘hook’ that keeps students in school and serves as the impetus for them to graduate.     -- Dr. Barbara Wall, GaDOE CTAE Director
