 Learn a trade!   Earn college credit in CTE Graphics & Web Design
High School Career Technical Education students can earn certificates of competency and have the additional opportunity to earn transferable college credit for each sucessfully completed course.

Digital Arts, Graphic Design, and Web Publishing & Media Design meet high school UC/CSU a-g graduation requirements and are UC-F approved. CTE students can use their college credit at a community college as elective credit OR CTE students can choose to transfer their college credits to a UC/CSU as fine arts credits/units.

( If all of this sounds confusing, please dont hesitate to contact me, as I would be happy to explain the many benefits of enrolling in a CTE articultated course)



-   A Greek Proverb that really resonated with me is as follows -

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."

Isn't that a nice thought to ponder?
