Career Technical Education

Director's Message ~

Welcome to Massillon City Schools Career Technical Education. We are fortunate here at Washington High School to have our own technical center built within our academic building. Our facilities are state of the art & provide a work-like environment. Massillon Washington High School’s 14 CTE workforce development programs serve approximately 70% of our Sophomore, Junior and Senior class population. Additionally our Family Consumer Science courses offer a variety of electives to attain valuable content & skills and we are proud to announce the second successful year for Career Technical Education at MJHS offering 3 pathways for students to explore. We have a dedicated CTE staff that makes the coursework for our students a valuable & relative learning experience in that career path. Many of our instructors have valuable experience in the field and are able to offer these experiences in their daily instruction as well as the ability to network within the business & industry to create more relevant opportunities for their students.
We strive to help our students find a successful pathway to their future. Post-secondary alignment, employment preparation and skill attainment are many of the areas we assist in this guidance. All of our programs offer multiple college credit opportunities with department of higher education, partnered universities and additionally offer aligned college credit plus courses for free providing a higher level of curriculum. Work based learning opportunities are also delivered in the areas of shadowing, field experience, internships, co-ops and on site customer service. We partner with several area businesses and corporations to make this possible. Aligned industry credentials and certifications can also be attained in most pathways. All of our students have the opportunity to participate and compete in their aligned career technical student organization (DECA, HOSA, Skills USA, BPA, Educators Rising and Junior Achievement). This provides a fun and engaging way to extend their skills and thinking. Over 116 Massillon CTE students qualified and competed at the state level in 2017 producing 8 state champions in 3 different organizations.  28 different students competed & represented Massillon CTE at the national level which provides an enriching experience and provides an in depth look at the competitive nature of the career field.

Make sure you follow us on twitter @MassillonCTE for updated events and highlights. I have no doubt that this will be another fantastic year for our students and staff. If you need information or have questions about any of our Career Technical programs please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Feel free to schedule any time for a site/facility visit. We would be more than happy to show you what we have to offer. Just call Cathie Pape at 330-830-3901 Ext: 50206 to set up an appointment. We look forward to serving you.
