CTE Endorsement

lg_WCSD CTE Business Logo
The Business department offers four pathways through which a student can attain a CTE endorsement on the high school diploma. This is a diploma designation that indicates a student has completed a sequential and rigorous series of courses, and passed a national industry assessment.

The pathways are:

  • Accounting
  • Business Administration
  • Computer & Information Sciences
  • Marketing
The intention of the endorsement program, as outlined by the New York State Education Department, is to prepare students for employment and postsecondary study. Similar to how pursuing a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation provides opportunities for advancement, the CTE endorsement allows students to excel in a desired program. The highest diploma type possible for any student is one that includes a CTE endorsement.

For more information, see the documents linked below. If you have questions, contact your school counselor or a business teacher.
