Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH) provide students with a seamless path from high school, to post-secondary education, to employment. In a P-TECH Academy, 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.

Elgin High School's P-Tech Academy is aligned to work with welding industry community partners to help propel students through high school, an Associate's degree from Austin Community College, and an American Welding Society (AWS) professional certification.
