    New Student Application Process

    1. Fill out your Online Application by using this link.

    The application is due March 28th, 2024. Please note: there are five Google forms to submit before your application is considered complete. 

    Links to all application materials can be found on the page with your Student Online Application. It is our preference to receive these as online submissions. 

    You will need a parent or guardian's recommendation, a counselor's recommendation, and two teachers' recommendations to be completed. We recommend that all forms be filled out online. If you can't access the online forms or have any questions, please email us, or call 315.963.4248.

    2. Sit for a Student Interview.

    Interviews of students who have applied to the Oswego County P-TECH School will occur in home districts during the regular school day. Interview teams will consist of educators and industry partners who will conduct interviews in person. (If you have a conflict please let us know, we can do remote interviews if necessary.) The interviews will last approximately twenty minutes and will give students an opportunity to share a different side and perspective of themselves than their written applications. Interview time slots will be coordinated directly with the families of students who apply. 

    Students will be asked about their most and least favorite subjects in school, why they are interested in P-TECH, their thoughts on redesigning the school day, and their career aspirations. Students will also be asked about how they work with others, how peers and teachers describe them, and what they would change about their middle school years if they could.

    Once interviews are completed, all information from the entire application package will be reviewed, and up to forty students will be selected to enroll in the school. Letters will be sent home to all applicants in late May or early June with additional directions about accepting the invitation to enroll.

    3. Wait patiently for your application status.

    Notification of application status will be sent out to all students at the end of May 2024.
