Career Technical Education (CTE) is a program of study that involves a multiyear sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students a pathway to postsecondary education and careers. The CTE program at TIDE Academy focuses on in-demand occupations across a variety of career pathways.  
 
Our CTE classes at TIDE Academy are also dual-enrolled with Foothill College, allowing students to earn college credits while also earning high school credits for the same course. Taking dual enrolled courses prepares students for the transition to college by earning college credit in high school, and helps students jump ahead in their postsecondary education. Dual enrollment courses are taught in partnership with Foothill College. 
 
TIDE Academy prepares students for STEAM careers through Computer Science or Business Marketing pathways. Two of two highly in-demand industry sectors of California's 15 Career Technical Education industry sectors.
