Career and Technical Education (CTE)
At Wilson Tech, high school students and adults can learn the skills that are needed in the workplace. Students learn technical skills such as how to operate or repair a computer, how to design a building or dress, how to cut and color hair or troubleshoot automotive issues. Additionally, you will gain life skills to be a useful and successful team member wherever you work!
