A Message from the CEO

CART’s teachers and business partners have created an exciting, innovative and powerful learning environment for junior and senior high school students. Our students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to solve problems faced by our local businesses, industries, and public agencies. Working in collaborative teams, students gain valuable experience in interpersonal relationships which provides them with an edge in today’s competitive business workplace.

Through our partnerships with the Fresno and Clovis Unified School districts, Fresno County ROP, Fresno Business Council and various local businesses, CART is working to fulfill its mission of preparing a workforce that can meet the needs of an expanding knowledge based economy.

CART’s career focused labs expose students to the many occupations that are available within each career cluster. Our business mentors work directly with students either at CART or through internships at worksites.

Our teachers use project based learning as an instructional model to deliver an integrated curriculum. Most of our classes are approved by the UC system as college prep. We also have several labs where students can earn college credit through the CSU Unitrack program. Over 85% of CART’s students choose to continue their career preparation at four-year colleges and universities, community colleges and technical schools. Due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals, scores of scholarships are provided to seniors in the CART program each year.

We invite you to visit and experience CART’s innovative program.
