What is P-Tech?

WHAT IS P-TECH?

 In a P-TECH school, students earn a high school diploma, an industry recognized associate degree, and gain relevant work experience in a growing field.   The schools create a seamless program for students to acquire the academic, technical, and workplace skills that employers need.  

 

HOW DOES P-TECH WORK?

P-TECH is a partnership among K-12, community college and industry, each making long-term commitments and contributing their best expertise to provide students with rigorous and hands-on academic, technical and workplace experiences.

The unique culture of a P-TECH school is built upon high expectations for students and a belief that all students can earn their college degree. Students see themselves as “college students” and “on a career pathway” from the moment they begin 9th grade. The model integrates high school and college coursework, enabling students to begin college courses as soon as they are ready. Students also participate in a range of workplace opportunities that include mentoring, site visits and internships — all designed to support students’ academic and professional growth.
