High School CTE Status by Educational Attainment shows the count and percentage of high school students that had participated in CTE courses and their highest education level achieved for a high school graduating class.
The data help us understand how educational attainment differs among high school graduates who participated in various capacity of career and technical education in high school. This report offers a clickable legend where you can focus the graph on specific education levels.

To calculate High School CTE Status by Educational Attainment, the report uses a single high school graduating class as the base population. Next, the process determines the high school CTE status – none through high school CTE completion and the highest education level received for each student. Students must have graduated from a Michigan public high school to be included. Students may have earned their college certificate or degree from an out-of-state college or university. Students who are continuing in education are excluded from the report.
The College Progression by Graduating Class report on MI School Data is a very similar report that can provide more detail such as additional subgroups, trend data, and ISD-, district- and building-level data.
Educational Attainment: The highest level of education completed (defined as high school diploma, certificate, associate degree and bachelor’s degree or higher).
Any Postsecondary Award: Subtotal comprised of certificates, associate degrees and bachelor’s degrees or higher. CTE: For the purposes of this report, career and technical education is limited to state approved secondary, or high school, programs.
High School CTE Status: Indicator of whether a high school student has participated in a state approved secondary CTE program. Values include No High School CTE, Enrolled, Concentrator and Completer.
High School Graduating Class: A cohort of students defined by the year in which they earned a high school diploma.
No High School CTE: CTE status for a student who has not had any enrollment in any course sections of a state approved CTE program.
Enrolled: CTE status for a student who has completed course sections covering less than half the content standards of a state approved CTE program and therefore will not be identified as a Concentrator or Completer. Sometimes referred to as a “Participant.”
Concentrator: CTE status for a student who has completed courses that cover more than half the content standards in a state approved secondary CTE program with a grade of 2.0 or better.
Completer: CTE status for a student who has completed, with a grade of 2.0 or better, course sections covering all content standards of a state approved secondary CTE program and has taken the CTE technical skill assessment, if applicable.
The Center for Educational Performance and Information, National Student Clearinghouse, the Michigan Office of Career and Technical Education and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity - Workforce Development collected the data used to complete this report:
- Student Transcript and Academic Record Repository to locate enrollment in a Michigan public community college or university. For details on the data definitions and how the data are collected, refer to the STARR Data Collection Manual
- The NSC StudentTracker database to locate enrollment from out-of-state or non-STARR participating colleges or universities. For a list of all colleges and universities that CEPI has available in its postsecondary data system, refer to the Postsecondary Entity List.
- The Career and Technical Education Information System collects high school enrollment information for state approved CTE programs including expenditures, enrollment, and follow-up. The data helps determine 61a(1) fund distribution and is required for federal Perkins reporting including Core Performance Indicators and the Consolidated Annual Report.
