The Napa County Office of Education's College and Career Readiness Department (NCOE CCRD) provides Career and Technical Education (CTE) in multiple industry sectors to high school students across 15 career pathways in NVUSD, Calistoga Joint USD, and St. Helena USD.


These pathways are taught by credentialed teachers with industry experience, and many meet a UC ‘a-g’ requirement. Students have the opportunity to take courses that prepare them for college and career through hands-on instruction by bringing theory and practice together. Many students use the skills developed in CTE courses to obtain employment while furthering their education or pursuing their career goals.
