The mission of CTE in Virginia is to provide educational strategies for engaging students in meaningful learning that connects to their personal interests, helps develop their understanding of the global economy that lies ahead, and deepens their understanding of how academic skills and knowledge are applied in their further education and careers.  


    The Heritage High School CTE Department is a team of excellent teachers working together to equip students with the skills and experience necessary to achieve their personal, academic, and career goals.   Courses focused on project-based-learning, and opportunities for leadership both in, and out of, the classroom contribute to our mission.  Additionally, most Heritage CTE courses offer a CTE Credential opportunity (now required for graduation with a Standard Diploma) or a work-based learning opportunity for students to broaden the scope and knowledge received through classroom coursework.
