The Dr. Kirk Lewis Career and Technical High School is a school of choice high school for students in grades 9-12 in the Pasadena Independent School District. Students from all PISD intermediate and high school campuses are welcome to apply to CTHS and select a career and technical education pathway from over twenty different program offerings. Many of these pathways provide the opportunity to earn an industry-recognized certification. Students from CTHS will be provided industry-standard training using industry-standard equipment in preparation for future career pathways. We strive to provide unique educational experiences for all students in order to prepare them for continuation into post high school education at both the college and university level, as well as outstanding training and preparation for those students selecting to enter the workforce directly upon high school graduation.
