Career Technical Education | Natomas Unified School District

Natomas Unified School District offers an array of Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways at our high school sites.

All NUSD CTE pathways allow students to meet graduation requirements, UC/CSU ‘a-g’ requirements, and some even provide students the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school.
