Corry's CTE programs have various articulation agreements with local colleges and technical institutions in the local area as well as in the region and state. These agreements may help accelerate a post-secondary degree program.
All Career and Technical seniors take the National Occupational Testing Institute (NOCTI) exam to earn the PA Skills Certification, indicating program competency levels.
