Middle School Exploratory

The middle school exploratory program provides eighth graders an overview of what Career & Technical Education (CTE) is. It can also spark interests and future enrollments. Once a month the eighth grade students from Newport Middle School and Newport Montessori School travel to a different CTE program where that teacher has an engaging interactive lesson planned out to highlight their program. At the end of the year, if a student completes all eight programs they will receive a certificate of completion for twelve hours of CTE education.
