Summit P-TECH Academy
P-TECH stands for Pathways in Technology Early College High School
The Summit P-TECH Academy offers students the opportunity to pursue college credit, work-based learning and industry-recognized certifications in computer programming and software development.
There are numerous benefits associated with attending Summit's P-TECH Academy. Students have an opportunity to earn tuition-free college credit, obtain a Level I Certificate in Programming through Tarrant County College (TCC) and participate in work-based learning opportunities with our industry partner, Mouser Electronics — all while getting their high school diploma.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software developers and programmers have a higher than average job outlook and occupations within these fields are expected to grow as much as 25 percent in the next 10 years. In addition, software developers can earn up to $120k per year while computer programmers can earn as much as $93k annually.
Accepted students will attend the school-within-a-school for their entire high school career and benefit from real-world experiences like job shadowing, internships and mentorships with Mouser.
