PSD Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares students for access to meaningful post-secondary opportunities in a highly competitive, global economy.  Our program is responsible for supporting student college and career readiness through real world, real life skills requiring both academics and training.

The Puyallup School District is committed to ensuring each student obtains essential skills necessary to succeed in a career that provides them with a sustainable living family wage by:

     • Delivering engaging hands-on courses that are relevant to today's workplace
     • Upholding rigorous industry and academic standards
     • Partnering with community business and industry leaders for mentorship and vision
     • Inspiring and preparing students to set and pursue fulfilling career goals

All students in CTE courses are connected with practice and growth in technical and leadership skills necessary to excel in meaningful post-secondary educational opportunities and life. View the CTE Safety Plan.
