Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Combs High School is dedicated to giving students opportunities to learn and grow both academically as well as technically. We offer many classes through Career and Technical Education Programs to help students learn the skills necessary to pursue careers in areas such as Agriculture, Early Childhood Education, Education Professions, Business Management, Medical Assisting, Medical Professions, Graphic Design, Digital Communication, Digital Photography, Film and TV, Stagecraft, Software and App Design, and Sports Medicine. Teachers of CTE courses have specialized Arizona certification in Career and Technical Education.

CTE courses that are not offered at Combs High can be taken at EVIT, East Valley Institute of Technology. EVIT is a joint technological education district serving over 35 high schools in the East Valley. Students attend EVIT half day and earn elective credits while attending their home high school the other half day for academic credits. Some courses at EVIT that are currently not offered at Combs High School include 3D Animation, Radio Broadcasting, Aviation, Culinary Arts, Commercial Banking, Construction, Diesel/Heavy Equipment Tech, PMT (Machinist), Welding, Automotive, Collision Repair, Fire Fighting, Law Enforcement, Cosmetology, Aesthetics, and Massage Therapy.

All of our current programs are in need of community members to serve on our Advisory Boards. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in helping guide the future of our students through Career and Technical Education, please contact the CTE Coordinator, John Scrogham, by e-mail or call (480) 882-3540 extension 7717. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please contact Mr. Scrogham.
