College and Technical education (CTE) PROGRAMS
HOW DO I ENROLL?
Residents of Foster and Glocester can elect a CTE program upon registering for classes.
Out-of-District Students must apply to attend a PHS CTE Program and maintain continuous enrollment.
What if I’m an 8th grader and can’t decide whether to enroll in a CTE Program?
Can I switch CTE programs?
Yes, the goal of enrolling in a CTE Program is to find your passion. At the end of each year, you have the option to switch CTE programs. This allows students to explore the programs that Ponaganset High School offers.
Can I be in more than one CTE Program? If I’m in a CTE Program, can I also take other elective courses?
I do not live in Foster or Glocester – where do I go to get more information on requirements and enrollment?
If you are not a resident of the towns of Foster or Glocester, you may still attend Ponaganset High School by enrolling in one of our CTE Programs. Please follow this link for more information on our application process, including the online application, enrollment criteria, and program continuation criteria.
If I enroll in a CTE Program, do I still receive the normal education if I want to go to college?
Yes, as a comprehensive high school, Ponaganset follows the requirements for graduation set by the RI Department of Education. Enrolling in a CTE Program allows students to utilize their 5.5 elective credits towards an individualized career field they may be interested in. Along with the requirements for graduation, students enrolled in CTE Programs have the ability to graduate high school with additional knowledge and skills; as well as college credits and industry certifications and/or credentials.
