Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) is similar to an Early College High School model, in that it allows students to earn college credit towards an associate's degree during high school. However, the P-TECH model alos incorporates business and industry to enable students to begin their college and professional careers simultaneously as they progress through high school. Graduates of P-TECH have the opportunity to earn an associate degree and leave the school with the skills and knowledge they need in order to continue their studies or step seamlessly into competitive jobs in their chosen field.
