The impact of a P-Tech Program
When will P-TECH Students Graduate?
P-TECH students, like regular high school students, complete their high school requirements within (4) years.
P-TECH Students can walk in graduation ceremonies at the end of the 4th year, however they will not physically receive their diploma until the program is complete.
Students that leave the program before finishing the 4th year return to a normal high school schedule.
Students that reach years (5) and/or (6) of the program, but do not finish, receive their high school diploma, earning college credits that may apply to earning a degree at CCRI or other colleges that recognize the credit.
All P-TECH students will receive a CNA Certificate, part of Extended Learning Opportunities.
Workplace Learning Curriculum
Using the SkillsUSA framework, P-Tech students will develop personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics, preparing them for career readiness.
