P-TECH program

Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) is a grant-funded program that enables students to earn an associate degree while simultaneously working toward their high school regents diploma.

Students entering grade nine are selected for this six-year program based on an application and recommendations. Each student receives intensive, individualized academic support from high school and college faculty in courses that are co-taught by a variety of academic and technical instructors with specific industry skills and training.

Students work in a project-based, high-tech learning environment created to simulate real-world problem solving and creativity. After-school and summer support are important components of the program.
 
P-TECH prepares students to earn an associate degree in one of three technical areas: computer technology, engineering technology, or health studies.

P-TECH students take on "Thanks for Giving" projects

The P-TECH students were challenged to participate in a “Thanks-for-giving” project. They were split into four groups with four focuses: giving back to BT-BOCES, their home district, P-TECH and the community.

The students in the group focused on community created what were called “warmth for winter packages” for the needy. The packages entailed a grocery bag containing a pair of gloves, a hat, socks, and something to eat. All were donated under the tag #winterwarmth.

This was a great opportunity for the students to show their support for the community and help improve the lives of those who are less fortunate.

Health Studies students meet state mandate for CPR training image Health Studies students meet state mandate for CPR training

The state now requires all high schools in New York to provide instruction on hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and training in the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to students as part of the health education curriculum. This means that students must be provided with CPR and AED training before they graduate. Students will need to be provided this instruction only once during their high school careers, and our P-TECH Health Studies students in 11th grade are tackling this task head-on and with enthusiasm. Following their training, they must take and pass a CPR exam to be CPR/AED certified.
