Career Technical Education Courses at RBVHS
High School Career Technical Education students can earn certificates of competency and have the additional opportunity to earn transferable college credit.

Digital Arts, Graphic Design, and Web Publishing & Media Design are also UC-F approved.
This meets the high school A-G graduation requirements.
CTE students can then transfer their college credits to a UC/CSU as fine arts 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 course)


Padlets are a gr eat way to post images.
