• Career Development

    Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) program aims to prepare students for employment opportunities, advanced education, and productive lives. CTE promotes best practices that enhance teachers' efforts to improve student achievement and encourage responsible career choices. We want to meet students' needs, cultivate their abilities, and help them realize their aspirations.

    The Career Development Process involves the completion of a variety of activities geared to help students determine or confirm their desired life direction. This is the initial action that must be taken in order to select an appropriate career or college major.

    The greatest challenge and the greatest need for career development programs occur at the high school level. The need is that graduation plans dictate certain educational selections that require guided reflection and decision-making. Ms. Lesley Brickhouse, the Career Development Coordinator (CDC), is available to help all students through the career development process.  There are various steps in this process that occur during each year that students are at Enloe Magnet High School.

    • Identify interests, strengths, values, traits, and ambitions
    Step 2:  Exploring career options

    Step 3:  Get Focused
