Career Tech

Opelika High School offers Career and Technical Education courses in the following programs:

  • Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
  • Business and Marketing
  • Teaching and Training
  • Restaurant, Food, and Beverage Services
  • Project Lead the Way (Engineering)
  • Health Sciences
  • Information Technology
  • Arts, A/V Tech, & Communications

Each pathway is designed to first introduce students to a particular career pathway by discussing the types of jobs that are associated with that career as well as the educational or work experience needed to begin work in that career. As students' progress through the coursework in a particular pathway, the courses become more in depth and skill oriented. By a student's senior year, if they have taken the required prerequisite coursework, they will be expected to enroll in a works/project based course where they will apply the knowledge and skills they have studied.

For students that are not able to complete the required prerequisite coursework or who transfer to Opelika after starting high school, there is the possibility of skipping certain courses in a pathway if they have completed similar coursework at another school or at Opelika or the student shows the necessary motivation and desire to succeed in the advanced coursework. In both instances, teacher approval to skip a prerequisite class must be acquired.
