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.

Student presentations focus on suicide prevention and awareness

Our P-TECH Health 10 students have been brainstorming ways they might reach out to classmates and peers throughout the region who are struggling with issues that far-to-often lead to thoughts of suicide. To that end, they formed teams to create public service videos focusing on where and how young people can get help. Part of that project included a recent presentation to members of the Broome County Suicide Awareness for Families and Educators (BC SAFE).
