  • Develop best practices for use in the classroom or in administrative roles

  • Create strategies to prepare South Carolina students for college and career readiness

  • Prepare participants to develop stronger CATE courses and programs for the success of all students. 

Through this unique event, educational leaders will be empowered to mold students into citizens that align to the Profile of the South Carolina graduate, which includes World Class Knowledge, World Class Skills, and Life and Career Characteristics. Collaboration between business/industry, career guidance, CATE teachers, administrators, postsecondary, and parents, will equip students with the skills needed to seamlessly transition from secondary to postsecondary education, the military, or career.
