The Huntington Technology department is committed to focusing on the need to better prepare students for higher education. The goal is to provide them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful innovators in a 21st century workforce.

Teaching relevant in demand skills that will prepare students to become innovators in an ever evolving world is paramount, not only for the future of our students but for the future of the country. The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that is becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our students to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math-subjects collectively known as STEM.

The world of business is waiting for you! Are you prepared? All careers, professions, and jobs involve some area of business. For some careers, you must study beyond high school while for others you may enter the world of work upon graduating from high school. Nevertheless, the skills you learn in the business classes will prepare you to enter the work force.

Students interested in completing a 5-unit sequence in Career and Technical Education should speak with their school counselor regarding course sequences.
