Moving Students to Careers and College

The Pima JTED Career and Technical Education District offers premier, tuition-free CTE programs to sophomores, juniors and seniors. We serve students from public, private, and charter schools, and students who are home-schooled. Pima JTED also serves students who have not earned a diploma or GED and are under the age of 22. Students may attend Pima JTED classes at one of our Central Campuses, located throughout Pima County, or at one of our satellite locations which are located at all public high schools in Pima County, Santa Cruz Valley, Nogales, and in Mammoth San Manuel.

If you’re interested in one of our Central Campus programs, contact our Student Services Team. If you’d like to enroll in one of our satellite programs, please contact your school counselor, or the school’s CTE Director.
