Are your ready to write your own story?
Imagine a high school without the bell schedule, without
students shuffling shoulder to shoulder through narrow hallways,
without the rows of desks and without lectures.
Imagine, instead, a new model for high school education, one
that doesnt focus on getting students ready for college but
actually includes college-level, credit-bearing coursework in
Welcome to P-TECH.
What does PTECH look like?
Students enter the PTECH program as 9th graders and work
simultaneously toward earning a Regents High School Diploma and
Degree in Applied Science from Fulton Montgomery Community
College at no cost to the
student's family. The 4-6 year sequence emphasizes individualized
pathways to completion, work place experiences, mentorship,
in-depth project-based learning and real world experiences.
PTECH offers four career clusters in Business Management and
Administration, Advanced Manufacturing (Clean Technology),
Information Technology and Health Sciences
What does a PTECH student look like?
A student who will succeed in PTECH is motivated to learn in new
and exciting ways, and thrives in a non-traditional classroom
setting. Are you creative, well organized and interested in
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math? Our students have the
desire to build strong skills in communications, critical
thinking, problem solving, collaboration and time management.
