Career and Technology

Not every student is destined to attend a four-year college. In fact, thousands of jobs are available to students who graduate from two-year colleges and technical schools with specialized degrees. Many companies have tuition reimbursement programs for students willing to earn degrees in certain fields such as nursing, process technology, and petroleum technology as well as other fields in high demand. In many cases students who graduate with a degree in these fields earn starting salaries between $35,000 and $65,000 per year.

Visit the Henderson ISD CTE website for information about the classes offered at the high school level.
