Career and Technical Education

Students who are interested in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program and/or pathway to graduation may apply to attend school for half the day at the Nassau BOCES Joseph M. Barry Career and Technical Education Center or BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts. These CTE programs, along with the qualifying academic credits specific to these programs, are approved by the New York State Department of Education.  CTE programs and/or pathway to graduation provide hands-on learning in areas that may lead to Career and Technical Education endorsement following the successful completion of an industry examination.  Hicksville High School also offers students an opportunity to enroll in an on-campus BOCES-sponsored CTE pathway program for either Nurse Assisting or Police Science and Criminal Justice.
