Apex Learning Expands CTE Programs of Study

Press Release — 2018 — Apex Learning, a recognized pioneer and innovator in online learning for secondary education, announces new Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that expand the programs of study available. According to recent research from Daniel Kreisman and Kevin Stange, Vocational and Career Tech Education in American High Schools: The Value of Depth Over Breadth, CTE participation is associated with higher wages when students pursue upper-level CTE courses, or courses within a sequence beyond the introductory class. The findings indicate that each additional year of upper-level vocational coursework is associated with a nearly two percent wage increase.
