CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION

Students enrolled in the Delavan-Darien School District are offered a variety of opportunities to explore and experience potential career pathways throughout their educational journey. The Delavan-Darien High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) department encompasses Agricultural Sciences, Business Education, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Technology Education. Our CTE programs offer students the opportunity to embark on a career pathway that relates to their future career interests and the modern day workforce. CTE students are able to gain business/industry knowledge and skills by working within our industry standard classroom/lab settings, networking with business/industry professionals, and while “test driving” potential careers through our career and work-based learning programs. Our established Career and Technical Education pathways allow students to further their education, develop their skills, and build their future!

In partnership with Gateway Technical College and Lakeshore Technical College, Delavan - Darien High school is proud to announce that each CTE program offers students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school.
