On the SkillsUSA North Carolina website, it says “SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure that America has a skilled work force.  We help every student excel.  SkillsUSA is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) that is recognized as an integral part of the classroom by the OVAE.” 

SkillsUSA’s mission is to empower its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens. SkillsUSA improves the quality of our nation’s future skilled workforce through the development of SkillsUSA Framework skills that include personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics. The SkillsUSA vision is to produce the most highly skilled workforce in the world, providing every member the opportunity for career success.

Caldwell Applied Sciences Academy students have the opportunity to be members of this beneficial organization.
