Information Session on New P-TECH and Early College High School Programs set for April 12



Students and parents interested in learning about the new P-Tech and Early College High School programs being launched by Questar III in partnership with Hudson Valley Community College and Capital Region BOCES are invited to attend a virtual information night on Monday, April 12 from 6 to 7 p.m.

Capital Region high school students from 46 school districts in Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Schoharie, and Southern Saratoga counties looking for pathways to well-paid careers are encouraged to consider the new high school that will be housed on the college’s main campus in Troy. The STEM-career focused high school will enable students to take advantage of several career-focused educational tracks through the Pathways in Technology, P-TECH (six-year) and Smart Scholars - Early College High School, SS-ECHS (four-year) programs.

These state-sponsored programs allow colleges and universities to partner with public school districts, creating an opportunity for students to earn college credits while completing their high school diploma. The programs will place students on the fast track to a college degree, while saving their families thousands of dollars in possible tuition costs. This is the first P-TECH and Smart Scholar Early College High School to be hosted on a community college campus in the Capital Region.

Interested students and families can learn more about the programs and register for the information session here:  https://www.questar.org/ptech-echs/
