P-TECH Description

P-TECH is an innovative partnership between Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Front Range Community College, and Lumen.

  • Students start their college coursework during their freshmen year, and will finish their degree at Front Range Community college for free.

  • As such, students graduate with both a high school diploma and an industry-recognized associate degree in Computer Information Systems, in addition to gaining relevant workplace skills.

  • Students receive intensive student support services, in addition to mentoring, job shadowing, internships, pre-apprenticeships, and other workplace educational experiences.

  • Students may also earn pre-apprenticeship certificates and other industry-recognized certificates in addition to an associate degree. After successful completion of the first semester of the third year, all P-TECH students will earn their Application Specialist Certificate. After successful completion of the fourth year, P-TECH students will earn their Foundations of Leadership & Management Certificate.

  • P-TECH is open to all students, with a special focus on encouraging enrollment of students who are socio-economically and racially diverse, the first to attend college in their family, English language learners, and students with disabilities.
