Starting at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year, VISD’s P-TECH West will have an Education and Training and Computer Science program option. P-TECH West is committed to providing a college-going and work-based learning environment where students earn a high school diploma, as well as college credits with Victoria College and/or the University of Houston - Victoria towards a bachelors degree.
While all students will have access to the program, the core mission of P-TECH is to give prospective first-generation and other students typically underrepresented in higher education a no-cost option to earn a two-year college degree and post-secondary certifications, allowing them to go into the workforce or transfer to a four-year college or university. Students will have a structured environment that will provide adequate support to ensure successful completion of the college courses.
