Welcome to the home of the Career and Technology Education department at A.C. Jones High School.  Beeville ISD believes that a strong and vibrant career and technical education program is an essential component of the high school curriculum.  For many students, CTE classes represent as much as a third of their high school experience.  In these classes the student is constantly exposed to leadership skills, problem solving, relevant technical skills in the field of study, essential life skills, preparation for a liveable wage employment as well as motivation toward advanced and continuing education.  This program focus supports basic academic and life skills and assists in achievement of high academic standards.

Currently, the CTE Department is comprised of twelve teachers. AC Jones is very fortunate to have a very talented and caring group of professionals who are focused on helping students make a successful transition from high school to the world of work, and/or continue their education through the military, technical school, two year community college or university. 

We are proud of our students' successes in CTE and welcome the public to come tour our programs.  We are currently in the process of forming a business-industry advisory committee that is comprised of community members who help advise on how best to prepare our students for life after high school. If you would like to arrange a tour, like to learn more about how you can become involved in CTE or have questions about our programs, please call or e-mail me. I look forward to talking with you.
