Midway ISD offers elective courses in Career & Technical Education (CTE) at our middle school and high school campuses. With courses offered in-house and through partnerships with the Greater Waco Advanced Manufacturing Academy (GWAMA) and Texas State Technical College (TSTC), Midway students can experience elective opportunities that align with 15 of the 16 National Career Clusters.
CTE courses are beneficial for every student, including those who plan to attend college. High school students involved in CTE are more engaged, graduate at higher rates and typically go on to postsecondary education. CTE prepares students to be college and career ready by providing core academic skills, employability skills and technical, job-specific skills.
All CTE courses have a corresponding CTSO, or Career & Technical Student Organization. At Midway ISD, our CTSOs are active in the community and competitive on both a state and national level. The design of each CTSO is to extend the learning from the classroom to the real world so that students can make authentic connections when applying their knowledge and skills. The active CTSOs and CTE supporting groups at Midway High School include:
- BPA (Business Professionals of America)
- FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America)
- HOSA - Future Health Professionals
- Texas FFA and National FFA
