What is a P-TECH
P-TECH stands for Pathways in Technology Early College High School. Dallas ISD has 18 designated P-TECH campuses. As part of the program, students can choose a career pathway and take courses that provide academic, technical, and workplace skills that are attractive to employers. Students have the potential to earn up to 60 credit hours or an associate degree while completing their high school requirements, along with industry certificates for their selected career pathway — opportunities that can potentially lead to paid internships and job placement after graduation all while pursuing their high school diploma. Best of all, this opportunity comes tuition-free.
- Are you interested in tuition-free college classes?
- Would you welcome the opportunity to earn 60 hours of college credit, an industry certificate, and an associate's degree while attending high school?
- Could you see yourself pursuing on-the-job training in a technology pathway leading to well-paying career opportunities?
If the answer is "Yes!" to any of those questions, a P-TECH program is the place for you. See Dallas ISD's P-TECH programs here.
