The Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide students with relevant career preparation and rigorous course work. 

The BCPS Fine Arts curriculum recognizes that all students have the right to an art education (dance, theatre, music, visual arts) as a fundamental part of a basic education.
