    CTE header Grand Prairie ISD’s Career and Technical Education program is committed to preparing and growing our students to succeed in college and career readiness through instilling the ideals of professionalism, leadership, and service. 

    More than a diploma…

    The Grand Prairie CTE program is designed to equip students for the world outside GPISD and is aligned with the workforce needs of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. CTE students are provided a unique opportunity to explore various CTE pathways and/or earn industry-ready certifications which in turn permit them to directly enter the workforce following their high school graduation or continue on a path to higher education opportunities with the knowledge and skills necessary to advance in the chosen field of study. We pride ourselves on preparing students for an ever-changing, ever-growing workforce.

    Students have access to robust, technology rich opportunities for career investigation in 14 of the 16 CTE Career Clusters and 4 of the 5 Endorsements. With 29 Career Experiences available, Grand Prairie students are able to choose an academic pathway that connects their area of interest with their high school education goals.
