P-TECH programs launch in Newport, Providence, Westerly

NEWPORT – The Pathways in Technology Early College High School program, also known as P-TECH, launched last month in three school districts, Newport, Providence and Westerly.

The program is designed to expose students to careers in advanced industries. Information technology, advanced manufacturing and cybersecurity, all identified as growth industries in the state, are the focus of P-TECH. Students in the program are mostly ninth-graders, but there are a few 10th-graders as well, according to information from R.I. Commerce Corp.

Gov. Gina M. Raimondo, who attended the kick-off for the P-TECH program at Westerly High School on Sept. 7, told the students: “Education is economic development. My top education priority is ensuring that every student graduates with the skills that matter for jobs that pay, including the thousands of jobs Electric Boat will create in the next 10 years. P-TECH will help Rhode Island and Rhode Islanders compete today and into the future.”
