Career Tech Center students break into non-traditional careers

Career Tech Center (CTC) students are encouraged to pursue their dream career regardless of their gender. Perhaps that’s why we have dozens of students pursuing non-traditional careers. From female students in Construction Trades and Auto Service to male students in Cosmetology and Health Scieces, CTC students are breaking down stereotypes.

The US Department of Labor defines non-traditional occupations as those where one gender comprises less than 25% of the individuals employed in such occupations. According to the Michigan Department of Education, nontraditional CTE programs for females include Arts & Communications; Business, Management, Marketing and Technology; Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology; Human Services (Public Safety/Protective Services); and Natural Resources and Agriscience. For males, Health Sciences and Human Services (Cosmetology) are considered nontraditional.

Meet a few of the CTC's non-traditional students by viewing our Non-Trad slideshow.


Career Camp, for current seveth and eight grade students, will take place June 17-20, 2019. Check the Career Camp web page in April for registration information.
