Eighth-grade group learns about BOCES P-TECH program
Posted on 02/24/2023
P-TECHA group of our 8th-grade students visited Broome-Tioga BOCES this week to check out opportunities offered in the P-TECH program, also known as Pathways in Technology Early College High School. The students visited different stations that highlighted P-TECH's Engineering, Computers and Health programs as well as SUNY Broome Community College's Health Studies, Fast Forward and Engineering programs. The event provided fun opportunities for area students to fly a drone, create LEGO robots, participate in logic games and more.
P-TECH is a grant-funded program that enables students to earn an associate degree while simultaneously working toward their high school regents diploma. Students entering grade 9 are selected for this six-year 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.
