  • What if I get in and I don't like it?

    Posted by:

    If a student decides the P-TECH Program does not fit their career interests, they are able to transfer back to their local high school.  Due to the course instructional model and sequence in P-TECH, it would be most advantageous to transfer at the end of the instructional year.  Should a student decide that a career in advanced manufacturing is not best for them, the P-TECH staff and industry mentors will work with the student and parent in discussing what career paths the student may be most interested in.
