What is P-TECH?

  • What is P-TECH? 

    New York City’s Grades 9-14 Early College and Career Schools (also known as P-TECH Schools) are public schools under the NYC Department of Education that offer an innovative six-year high school program to prepare students for college and careers competitive in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) industries.

    Each one of the Grades 9-14 schools is affiliated with a CUNY community college and offers students the opportunity to take courses toward an Associate degree, at no cost to the student. Each Grades 9–14 school also works with lead industry partners to support students in exploring careers and attaining skills needed to work in STEM industries. Grades 9-14 high schools are open to all New York City students.
