Mission Statement

The mission of Career and Technical Education in North Carolina is to: 

Empower all students to be successful citizens, workers, and lead in a global economy.

Perquimans County Career Technical Education begins at the middle school with exploratory programs in Biotechnology, Computer Science, and STEM. Students engage in inquiry-based learning that applies the Core curriculum to the real world. Students continue to expand their skills through career pathways at the high school. We offer the following career clusters:

  • Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources
  • Business Management & Administration
  • Finance
  • Health Science
  • Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security
  • Transportation, Distribution & Logistics

Students who complete a pathway qualify for the WorkKeys Assessment to earn the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).  In addition to the NCRC, students have opportunities to earn numerous certifications across every pathway.

The CTE Impact: Where core curriculum meets career skills.

In compliance with Federal Law:

“Perquimans County Schools administers all education programs and employment activities without discrimination against any person on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, socioeconomic status, parental or marital status.”
