WINFIELD HIGH SCHOOL OBSERVES
NATIONAL CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION MONTH
by Justin Hogan, WHS Instructor/CTE Coordinator
Students and faculty in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathways at Winfield High School join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM. This year’s theme is Celebrate CTE Superheroes! CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE educates students to be college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.
Winfield High School currently offers students 71 CTE courses within 15 Career Pathways which include: Ag Power, Structural & Technical Systems, Ag Plant Systems, Agribusiness, Arts/AV Communications, Business Entrepreneurship & Management, Business Finance, Construction, Design and Pre-Construction, Early Childhood, Family and Community Services, Health Occupations Exploration, Pre-Engineering, Programming and Software Development, Teaching/Training, and Web and Digital Communication.
“CTE encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million postsecondary students in the United States. CTE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and workforce problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness and massive layoffs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one-third of the fastest growing occupations will require an associate’s degree or a postsecondary vocational certificate. At a time when job opportunity is so critical, CTE programs in every community are ensuring students are adequately equipped with the skills to successfully enter the workforce.” (ACTE, 2014)
“The doors are always open to interested community members that want to view the CTE courses taught at WHS,” offers Justin Hogan, CTE coordinator. “We want the public to see the variety of skills that students are acquiring at WHS.”
By partnering with the business community, CTE programs are investing in students’ lives with the latest technology and skills that will prepare them to become successful employees as well as future leaders. If you or someone you know would like to get involved as an advisory committee member, please contact us.

Winfield High School administration, faculty and staff would like to welcome you to the start of a brand new school year. Thank you for visiting our school website. It is our desire to make our school and website a warm and welcoming environment. I hope that you take a moment to look through our website and discover more about us. Our goal for the site is to create open lines of communication, inform the public about our many programs and be a model for learning.
At Winfield High School our kids are our greatest treasure and we are quite proud of their accomplishments. We have a rich tradition of success in both the classroom and extra curricular activities. Our mission is to build and develop our young adults into lifelong learners who can problem solve and become leaders in our communities. Our students learn communication skills, critical thinking skills, team building skills and at the same time learn to develop positive relationships with their peers and staff.
Our mascot the “Vikings” were traditionally a group of people who explored new lands and were not content to settle in one place. They sought adventure and wanted to learn about new lands, cultures and people. This is the personification of our school and students. We encourage them to build and prepare for the future, wherever that may take them.
I hope you enjoy our website and you are able to find the schedules, programs, information and services that we offer our students and community.
