Gridley High School has 5 Career Technical Educational Academies available for students to pick from. Many of our CTE courses are A-G approved or Dual Enrolled Courses with Butte College.
Students can not only prepare themselves for college by following the A-G curriculum for CSU's and UC's or getting ahead but can also earn college credits while taking a Dual Enrolled Course all while preparing for a career by getting exposure to our Academy course offerings. 
In addition, to the richness and diversity of our CTE curriculum, students will come away with industry standard certifications in each academy they participate in and in some CTE academies, our Gridley High School Students will participate in an internship within their Career focus area.
