Capital Region Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH)

Designed for students who want something different from their high school career

Students interested in taking a deep-dive into the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) during their high school years should consider our Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program.

This engaging, four to six year program (grades 9-14) prepares students for future careers in a variety of STEM-related fields through hands-on, project-based learning. 

Students who successfully complete the program earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree in a high-tech field from an area college at no cost. Graduates are first in line for a job with industry partners in the growing field of information technology. 

Students can choose from one of two P-TECH sites, each offering a distinct pathway learning. Currently our programs are held at Watervliet Junior-Senior High School (East Campus) and the Center for Advanced Technology at Mohonasen (West Campus). 

Students of all academic achievement levels are encouraged to apply. Special effort will be made to recruit and support:

  • students who are considered academically and/or economically at-risk
  • populations that historically lack access or success in higher education
  • students from Focus or Priority schools
