P-TECH students are provided an advanced education over a multi-year pathway of study leading to an Associate’s degree and an exciting and rewarding career. Beginning in 9th grade, faculty focus on providing students with personalized and project-based learning plus professional skill development leading to success in each course. As the years progress in grades 10 to 12, students continue to achieve the required courses and credits towards their high school diploma, and enroll in and complete courses in their college pathway. By year 4, students have met the academic requirements for a high school diploma and begin to review which courses they will need to complete at FLCC in years 5 and 6. While at both the P-TECH school and FLCC students also prepare for their career by: engaging in industry visits and challenges, career exploration, work-based learning, creating and refining their cover letter and resume plus refining interview skills.
W-FL P-TECH has built a comprehensive six-year integrated scope & sequence that includes students participating in local, Regents and college courses simultaneously. Depending on the Pathway chosen, students will sometimes be with their entire cohort in classes and sometimes with cohort students who have chosen the same pathway.
