More than 40 programs in nine different career clusters


A student electricianThe approximately 40 programs CTE offers students can be divided among nine different career clusters. A career cluster is a group of jobs and industries that are related by skills or products.

Students, parents, and educators can use career clusters to help focus education plans toward obtaining the necessary knowledge, competencies and training for success in a particular career pathway.

The federal government identifies 16 career clusters; at Capital Region BOCES, we give students multiple opportunities to be a part of nine of those clusters. CTE programs as divided among the clusters are as follows:

Agriculture and Natural Resources

Architecture and Construction


Government and Public Administration


Health Science
