What is a P-TECH?
P-TECH stands for Pathways in Technology Early College High School. As part of the program, students can choose a career pathway and take courses that provide the 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 along with industry certificates for their selected career pathway. Best of all, this opportunity comes tuition-free.
What is an Early College High School/Collegiate Academy?
A school is considered a Collegiate Academy until it receives its designation from the Texas Education Agency as Early College High School, but they both function the same and provide the same services to students.
An Early College High School/Collegiate Academy is a high school that offers students the opportunity to earn dual-credit- credit for both high school courses and college courses. College tuition fees are waived. This gives students the opportunity to earn an associate degree or up to 60 hours of college credit.
