Capital Region Pathways in Technology Early High School (P-TECH)to begin September 2018


Current eighth-graders who want something different from their high school careers are invited to attend Capital Region P-TECH in September 2018.

Debt-Free Degrees + Skills for Success = Future Freedom

P-TECH is a four to six year program (grades 9-14) designed to engage students and help them be successful in careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Students who successfully complete the program earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree at no cost in a high-tech field. Graduates are first in line for a job with industry partners in the growing field of information technology.

Students can choose from one of two sites—Watervliet-Junior High School and Mohonasen High School. Initial diploma pathways for students include degrees in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems and Cybersecurity, and pathways will expand in 2019.
