Hilton High School Career and Technical Education [CTE] Diploma endorsements

Hilton High School has received accreditation from NYS Education Department to offer a Career and Technical Education [CTE] endorsement on the Regents Diploma for three courses of study: Business Management, Pre-Engineering

The CTE endorsement indicates on a student's diploma that they completed a program beyond a Regents diploma. Students can earn the endorsement on their high school diplomas when they successfully complete requirements for a local or Regents diploma.

Business Management Career and Technical Education [CTE]  The Business Management CTE endorsement indicates that a student has completed a more rigorous program of studies in Business Management: a five-course sequence in business education, including Career & Financial Management, Principles of Marketing, Sports & Entertainment Marketing, Accounting, Web Design/Microsoft Office, Technical Reading and Writing, and have completed a work experience component,  a portfolio of their work, and successfully pass a nationally accredited exam, the NOCTI in Business Management.  Many of these courses are offered for dual credit through MCC so students can earn college credit while taking these courses at Hilton.

Pre-Engineering CTE   The Pre-Engineering program leading to a CTE endorsement is offered by the Hilton High School Technology Department and is designed to give students an overview of the engineering profession and related careers. Students complete courses including: Career & Financial Management; Principles of Engineering; Digital Electronics and Robotics; Computer Integrated Manufacturing; Technical Reading and Writing as well as an additional credit of the studentís choice, focusing on Introduction to Engineering Design; AutoCAD & Advanced AutoCAD; Architectural Drawing I & II; or Technical Drawing. In addition, students complete a three part assessment which includes the NOCTI written exam; a demonstration; and a portfolio. Many of these courses have agreements with local colleges [MCC and RIT] which allow students to receive college credit while taking these courses at Hilton High School. Students will also complete a work-based segment such as shadowing, internship, work experience or co-op.
