Career and Technology Education is a vital component of Stratford's comprehensive educational system. Courses in Business Education, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Technology Education prepare students for the various roles they will play as economically and technologically literate citizens. Today's students need to function in a diverse global economy and will need to know how to create and manage information, make decisions, solve problems, and be responsible and productive citizens.

In our current society, success for both business and individuals requires more than content mastery. The workplace of today requires skills in human relationships, self-management, teamwork, leadership, problem solving and critical thinking. Students need to be sensitive to ethical issues, understand cultural diversity, and have strong work values and interpersonal skills.
