Career and Technology (CATE)
Career and Technology Education (CATE) is composed of a series of programs which introduce students to real world careers.  In 2000, the Fort Mill School District implemented a comprehensive high school model for CATE courses. In this model, CATE courses are infused in the total high school curriculum. This allows all students to be able to easily participate in CATE courses.  These courses offer rigorous content, utilize state-of-the-art equipment and technology and engage in hands-on real world projects and activities.  Students who take four courses in a program area are considered “completers” and are eligible to wear a special cord at graduation.  Many of these students participate in internships and/or apprenticeships during their capstone course. Some students also earn portable certifications in their program area.  

The following CATE programs are offered for all Fort Mill School District high school students.
