What is CART?

The Center for Advanced Research and Technology (CART) is the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art education reform effort at the secondary level to date. CART combines rigorous academics with technical, design, process, entrepreneurial, and critical thinking skills.

The 75,000 square foot CART facility, designed as a high performance business atmosphere, is organized around four career clusters. They are Professional Sciences, Engineering, Advanced Communications, and Global Dynamics. Within each cluster are several career-specific laboratories in which students complete industry-based projects and receive academic credit for advanced English, science, social science and technology.

Eleventh and twelfth grade students from the Clovis and Fresno Unified School Districts are bused to CART where they attend half-day classes in one of the laboratories taught by teams of instructors from both education and business. The partnership between the school districts is a unique opportunity to make systemic change in education and positively influence the future of all students in the San Joaquin Valley, a rapidly expanding economic area for high-tech business and agricultural firms.
CART provides a state-of-the-art research and technology facility where students design and complete projects in collaboration with partners from the local, national, and international business community. Through learning plans, individualized attention, and a coordinated sequence of projects, CART students explore the variety of ways they can achieve their career goals. Working with business partners, teachers, and parents, students design a program of study that qualifies them to pursue the post-secondary path of their choice from entry-level positions to industry certification to university admission. With the knowledge, skills, and support they receive, students leave CART ready to launch their careers.

Career Technical Education (CTE)/Regional Occupational Program (ROP)
CTE/ROP prepares students for further education at colleges and universities, employment, or advanced technical training. Students also develop positive work attitudes and behaviors. CTE courses are offered through various career and industry pathways for 9th through 12th grade students in CUSD. ROP classes are held on each of the 5 high school campuses in Clovis Unified and are for 11th and 12th grade students only. Each ROP class is two periods long so students will earn 10 credits per semester and these classes have the potential to waive the CUSD PE requirement for the year (but ONLY IF the student has already completed 4 semesters of PE CORE and has a FULL academic schedule). Some CTE/ROP classes also offer students the opportunity to earn college credits in addition to high school credits.
Transportation is ONLY provided between Clovis High and Clovis East making it easy for students to access additional course offerings at these two sites. Personal transportation is needed for class offerings at Buchanan, Clovis West, and Clovis North.
