Offered at Skyline High, it is a model that allows students to earn a high school diploma, as well as a no-cost Associates of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Front Range Community College. This program includes significant internship and mentorship opportunities with IBM, giving students a head start on their career after completing the program. Students enroll in 9th grade and complete the program in 4-6 years.
Starting in 2016 at Skyline High School, SVVSD has entered into a cooperative agreement with Front Range Community College (FRCC) and IBM to give St. Vrain students the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in 4-6 years.
P-TECH will initially offer a pathway in Computer Information Systems (CIS) and the district will support concurrent enrollment during grades 9-12. Students can receive dual credit from St. Vrain and Front Range.
Along with college courses, students will receive mentorships and internships through IBM to provide real-world experiences to supplement their academic coursework.
Students must apply for the P-TECH program and will begin coursework in the 9th grade. For 2016, there are 50 spots available in the P-TECH program at Skyline - the first cohort in the state.
