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.
