The state of Connecticut funds and operates the Connecticut Technical High School System (CTHSS), a statewide system of 16 degree-granting technical high schools and one technical education center, serving approximately 10,200 full-time high school students with comprehensive education and training in 38 occupational areas. CTHSS also serves approximately 5,500 part-time adult students in apprenticeship and other programs. Two full-time adult programs are offered in aviation maintenance.

High school students receive a college preparatory curriculum and earn a Connecticut high school diploma as well as a certificate in a specific trade technology. Approximately 45 percent of graduates go on to college and approximately 50 percent go on to employment, apprenticeships or the military following graduation.

Adult students are provided full-time post-high school programs, apprentice training and part-time programs for retraining and upgrading skills. Many customized educational programs and services for youth and adults also are provided. These include English for language learners (ELL) programs, tech prep relationships, handicapped and psychological services, and a full complement of remedial programs. Program relevance is ensured through an extensive network of technology advisory committees, authentic assessment and an aggressive response to the implementation of emerging technologies of the workplace.
