Career and Technical Education Department

    It is the goal of the AISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) department to create classroom environments for students composed of rigorous, industry-approved curricula that provide students with a safe, economical opportunity to experience real-world application of core content, guiding students to explore options available to them for college and career paths. 


    The CTE program accentuates state and national standards by enabling students to gain entry-level employment in high-skill, high-wage jobs and/or continuing their education. Alvin ISD CTE Programs are committed to attracting, developing, and preparing students for diverse careers that reflect current and future industry trends.


    CTE courses are offered at EACH secondary school in our district (JH and HS), in addition to our state of the art Career Center-- JBHensler located centrally.  We offer over 100 courses, in over 26 different Programs of Study, within 13 clusters. 


    The JBH Career Center is a centrally located campus that houses upper level CTE classes that students across the district are eligible to take as a part of their Program of Study.  Students will attend their "Home" campus for initial CTE courses, then take upper level (typically Jr. and Sr level) classes at JBH. Bus transportation is provided to and from JBH from each HS each day.
