Pathways in Technology Early College High School
What is P-Tech?
Our program provides students with a seamless pathway from high school, to post-secondary education, to employment in the welding industry. Students earn a high school diploma and professional credentials, including certifications and licenses, and education credentials, which include educational certificates, diplomas, and degrees. They also engage in work-based education at every grade level, such as internships, apprenticeships, or other forms of job training programs.
We will support students in their attainment of a college education and the specific skills needed by employers in high growth industries.
HOW IT WORKS
Students complete high school and college coursework simultaneously while engaging in industry guided workforce development.
WHY IT MATTERS
Upon graduation, students have the academic and professional skills required to continue their education or enter the workforce in a high demand field.
