Results show that even after controlling for various pre-college and environmental factors, community college students who had participated in a high school CTE program were either just as likely or more than likely to attain all of the outcomes measured in the study when compared to students from general curriculum programs. Although high school CTE students who matriculated to community colleges were significantly less likely to transfer to a four-year college with or without a credential as compared with college prep students, they had significantly greater odds of earning an associate’s degree or a certificate.
Dietrich and Lichtenberger, the study’s lead authors, noted that “high school CTE participation may help facilitate goals related to the completion agenda which call for increasing the number of individuals with quality postsecondary credentials.”
