With Garland ISD offering approximately 200 Career and Technical Education courses at seven high schools and 12 middle schools, the need for a CTE Center was top priority on the school districts agenda.

“Available courses vary with each campus,” GISD Career and Technical Education Director Phil Gilbreath said. “The CTE Center will allow students to continue studies in chosen pathways, pursue advanced studies and explore new interests, regardless of their home campus.”

Possible areas of study include animation, architecture, business, computer maintenance, culinary arts, engineering, graphic communication, health sciences, firefighting, veterinary assistant, computer programming, fashion design, marketing, fabrication and machining, manufacturing engineering, electrical technology, logistics and robotics. Courses will be offered in morning or afternoon sessions.
