Eaton County Career & Technical Education
Welcome to Eaton County Career & Technical Education
Greetings! Welcome to Career and Technical Education (CTE) in Eaton County! Following our national motto, “Celebrate TODAY, Own TOMORROW,” our CTE programs inspire and connect students to careers with real world experiences as they move seamlessly from career exploration to career and college readiness during their K-12 educational journey.
Eaton County has a long-standing history of providing excellent career-focused opportunities for students. CTE programs are offered through the RESA’s Career Preparation Center and four of the five local high schools - Charlotte, Eaton Rapids, Grand Ledge, Maple Valley, and Potterville. Local industry, AIS, Capital Region International Airport, DRM International, Farm Bureau Insurance and Potter Park Zoo - as well as post-secondary institutions including Davenport University, Lansing Community College, and The University of Olivet offer unique learning opportunities and direct college credit for many CTE programs. These CTE partners open the door for many students, every day! Beginning in elementary school students are exposed to early career awareness; in middle school career exploration around student interest is linked with program offerings and high school students are intentionally connected with individualized career experiences, programs, industry credentials and direct college credit.
