Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) is one of only a select few programs of its kind in the state, the Troy Riverfront P-TECH program puts high school students on a direct career path to the region’s most in-demand fields including technology, biotechnology, and advanced manufacturing.
As a result of taking a combination of high school and college level courses, P-TECH students will earn 20-30 college credits before they complete 12th Grade. College level courses will be focused on the most heavily demanded skills from the fastest growing fields — all with the support of a team of teachers, counselors, and industry professionals.
Students will also have job shadow and internship opportunities at participating companies. Students will explore careers and see firsthand how their academic studies apply to the real world.
The unique P-TECH high school experience means students earn a Regents High School Diploma and an Associate’s Degree at no cost to the student or their families. These students are then first in line for jobs at some of the region’s most prestigious companies. Or, they can continue their education at a four-year school.
Troy Riverfront P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) is a partnership of Troy City Schools, Questar III BOCES, Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC), the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), GE Healthcare, Simmons Machine Tool Corporation, and Regeneron.
