Career and Technology Studies

Career & Technology Studies/Foundations

The Career & Technology Studies (CTS) program helps you acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude for a career that is relevant to your interests. The entire CTS program centers around five industry clusters and 28 occupational areas organized into one-credit courses. Are you interested in culinary arts, robotics, or manufacturing? Perhaps you want to explore how to build your own business, or stream your own video content to viewers around the globe? At Louis St. Laurent you have many opportunities to pursue your interests within multiple CTS course clusters at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels through the following pathways:

  • Business Administration & Information Technologies Studies (BIT)
  • Health, Recreation & Human Services (HRH)
  • Media, Design & Communication (MDC)
  • Trades, Manufacturing & Transportation (TMT)

In addition, Louis St. Laurent has a tremendous Sports Performance program which runs underneath the CTS clusters. In CTS students are allowed to follow their own interests to expose themselves to new career pathways that they may have not even considered.

Pathways Planning – Career & Technology Foundations

Career development requires students to develop enthusiasm for lifelong learning, which begins early. The Career & Technology Foundations (CTF) program encompasses students in grades 7 through 9. Students within the Louis St. Laurent Junior High have access to excellent teachers and facilities within Design, Fashion, Foods, Robotics, Construction and Communication Technologies. Students within CTF have an opportunity to develop and apply the skills, knowledge and technologies associated with those occupational areas.
