Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH) provide students with a seamless path from high school, to post-secondary education, to employment. In a P-TECH Academy, students earn a high school diploma and professional credentials. These include educational certificates, diplomas, and degrees. Students also engage in work-based education at every grade level, such as internships, apprenticeships, or other forms of job training programs.
With the support of the Texas Education Agency (TEA), we target thriving industries in the region, to address key workforce needs in high-demand fields. The P-TECH Model gives students an opportunity to:
- earn an associate degree while earning their high school diploma
- earn a two-year postsecondary certificate or industry certification
- complete work-based training gain work experience through internships, apprenticeships, or other job training programs
- prepare for military enlistment

Under the authority of the Texas Education Code (TEC) §§29.551-29.557 and the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §102.1095, the TEA developed a designation process for the Pathways in Technology Early College High School program. This designation process ensures that public school districts, local education agencies (LEAs), and charter schools operating P-TECH campuses maintain the integrity of the model, which was researched and designated to target and serve students who might not otherwise attend college.
Nearly 6,500 students are served by P-TECH schools. Texas is home to 62 designated P-TECH Schools and has 19 planning campuses for the 2019-2020 academic year. Access to the CCRSM interactive map to locate P-TECHs across Texas HERE.
