Georgia's Career Clusters/Pathways provide a structure for organizing and delivering quality Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs in Georgia's public high schools. Utilizing the Career Cluster model used by most of the United States, Georgia's Career Clusters/Pathways model represents numerous career pathways to help students navigate their way to greater success in college and career. This model also serves as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction and provides essential knowledge and skills for the students' career pathways. Another benefit of this model allows students to discover their interests and passions, empowering them to choose the educational pathway that may lead to success in high school, college and career. The Career Clusters/Pathways encompass both secondary and postsecondary education and will strengthen and improve student transition from secondary to postsecondary education or to the workforce.
Haralson County High School offers 13 pathway opportunities in the Career Technical Agricultural Education (CTAE) Department. Students are expected to complete a pathway in sequential order as listed here. Upon completion of a pathway, students will take an end of pathway assessment. Successfully passing the end of pathway assessment offers additional opportunities to our students, as many of these assessments provide students with state and national certifications.
