Pathways in Technology Early College High School ( P-TECH)

P-TECH Enrollment Application 

What is a P-TECH?

P-TECH is an acronym for Pathways in Technology Early College High School.  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.

A school is considered a P-TECH if it is designated from the Texas Education Agency, and they have industry partners that align with the campus pathways.

How does P-TECH work?

P-TECH is a partnership among K-12, higher education, 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 are “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.
