P-TECH RI Announces New Website Launch

P-TECH RI program launches its first website bringing awareness of program to potential students, mentors, and partners.

Providence, RI – March 23, 2018 — P-TECH RI, Pathways in Technology Early College High School, announced today the launch of its new website at www.p-techri.org. The new website features information about the five Rhode Island P-TECH programs, student stories, pathways information, and how employer involvement is critical to student success and ways they can get involved.

P-TECH programs are public high school programs that integrate high school, college, and the workplace with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The result is a seamless pathway that allows students to graduate with a high school diploma, a tuition-free Associate Degree from CCRI (selected fields), and relevant professional experience in some of Rhode Island’s most high-growth industries.

“The launch of the P-TECHRI site is the culmination of work by all the programs working together, said Kris Turgeon,” P-TECH Industry Liaison at Tech Collective. “With 5 programs in Rhode Island, we felt it was time to create a place where students from around the state could learn about the exciting opportunities at P-TECH.”

The Rhode Island programs are a collaboration between 5 public school districts (Providence, Newport, Westerly, Woonsocket, and N. Providence), major industry partners such as Tech CollectiveFM GlobalUNFICVSElectric BoatSenedia, and the Community College of Rhode Island.
