Prince William County offers a wide variety of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs designed to provide rigorous and relevant curriculum that engages students in the acquisition of academic and technical knowledge and skills, leadership opportunities, and real-world applications. By connecting what students already know and relating it to new information and issues, CTE uses contextual learning to help students see the meaning and purpose of what they are learning. CTE prepares students for their post-secondary experiences whether it is straight into the workforce, additional technical training, or college.

- Completion of a concentration of CTE courses that could meet the sequential elective requirement for graduation
- Opportunity to earn college credit for some CTE courses completed in high school (dual enrollment)
- Ability to earn the Board of Education Career and Technical Education Diploma Seal
