TST BOCES P-TECH Academy
Earn an Associate’s Degree at no cost
Students enter the P-TECH program as ninth graders and each will successfully earn their Regents Diploma, Associate’s Degree, and gain access to a quality work opportunity in either Advanced Manufacturing or Computer Science at the end of their time with us.
We collaborate with families, business, and community to create fully accessible, meaningful & relevant curriculum that is culturally responsive and sustaining. We engage in ongoing curriculum development and teacher learning, in order to ensure a fully inclusive and culturally sustaining learning environment for every student. We collaborate with business and community partners to design genuine work-based challenges that help students learn the workplace, professional, and life skills needed for success in their industries and their lives.
Student learning at P-TECH Academy is project-based and includes ongoing workplace learning experiences. Student learning is evaluated using a portfolio-based authentic assessment approach. Together, we use digital portfolios and narrative reporting to communicate what students have learned and are able to do, to reflect on student growth over time, and to set new learning goals.
