  • What is VP-TECH?:

    Valley Pathways in Technology Early College High School (VP-TECH) is a new type of school that brings together the best elements of high school, college and the professional world. Students who will be ninth-graders in September 2018 are eligible to be part of the next class of VP-TECH.

    VP-TECH enables students to begin their college and professional lives more quickly and with more support than the typical school-to-work pathway. Graduates of VP-TECH earn an associate degree in quality assurance and leave the school with the skills and knowledge they need in order to continue their studies or step seamlessly into competitive jobs in the advanced manufacturing industry.
