South Stark Career Academy

Canton South students have the opportunity to attend career technical programs at Canton South, East Canton, Perry, and Sandy Valley.

Career Technical programs are designed to prepare young adults for a broad range of careers that require varying levels of education, from high school, apprenticeships and postsecondary certificates to college and university degrees. Many students receive industry certifications or credentials before graduation.

While most students attend CTE programs during their junior and senior years, there are a few opportunities for students in grades 9-12. Admission to these programs can be competitive; grades and attendance are considered.
