This section provides tabulated statistics on CTE at the high school level (grades 9-12). Most statistics focus on public high schools and public high school graduates. Statistics for years 2013 forward use the 2018 Secondary School Course Taxonomy to define CTE. Statistics for years prior to 2013 use the 2007 revision to the Secondary School Taxonomy to define CTE. The statistics before 2013 are not comparable to those from 2013 forward because of this change in taxonomy.
This page organizes the secondary/high school tables by topic. In addition, all NCES tables can be searched with words or phrases, using the Tables and Figures search. See the CTE StatisticsTable Archive for tables from previous data collections.
