The CAD and Manufacturing programs of Van Dyke Public Schools’ Lincoln High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program are partnering with local companies for the benefit of students and employers; the result being highly trained student interns and graduates who are able to “step” right into positions in their local communities.
Learning by doing, in engaging, real-world context—from passionate teachers who have actual work experience in the field—has always been at the heart of the best career and technical education (CTE) programs.

In Chippewa Valley Schools, we’re proud that you will find a well-established, exemplary model of both.
