PTECH logo from Capital Region BOCESCurrent eighth graders interested in getting on the fast track to a high school diploma with a no-cost college degree in a high-tech field and the front line for a job with industry partners should consider learning more about Capital Region Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH).

This engaging, four to six year program (grades 9-14) prepares students for future careers in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through hands-on, project based learning. Depending on their interests, students will study at one of two Capital Region sites beginning their freshman year and remain there for the duration of the program. Each site offers a distinct pathway that leads to an associate’s degree from a neighboring college in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems or Cybersecurity. Students in Scotia-Glenville are eligible to apply.

Recruitment is underway now for September 2019 with applications due by January 28, 2019.
