School is already in session and Broome-Tioga BOCES has a special program that enables students to earn an associate degree while simultaneously working toward their high school regents diploma. It's called Pathways in Technology Early College High School or P-TECH.
The first P-TECH cohort is currently enrolled in both college (SUNY Broome) and high school. Students entering grade nine are selected for this six-week program based on an application and recommendations.
Each student receives intensive, individualized academic support from high school and college faculty in courses that are co-taught by a variety of academic and technical instructors with specific industry skills and training. Students work in a project-based, high-tech learning environment created to simulate real-world problem solving and creativity. After-school and summer support are important components of the program.
P-TECH prepares students to earn an associate degree in one of three technical areas, computer technology, engineering technology, or health studies.
For more information about the P-TECH program, contact Assistant Principal Matthew Sheehan at (607) 763-3346 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
