Students Discover Passions, Careers with Comal Compass

As students enter middle school, they begin to put their future dreams into action. The question of, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" begins to take shape. By the time they enter high school, they are provided opportunities to "try out" those dreams. Comal Compass is Comal ISD's program that gives those dreams direction and more.
CTE Health Class

Elective Medicine

Many of the vocational classes offered today at high schools are not your typical electives. Comal ISD's Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, like Health Science, are part of a multi-faceted, modern curriculum that provides students with the technical knowledge and real-world skills they need to get started in a current or emerging profession.
