Career & Technical Education: Learning That Works for New Jersey

New Jersey P-TECH

Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) is a career pathway program that includes strong industry, secondary and postsecondary partnerships that are designed to align with local, regional or state industry economic development initiatives.


NJ P-TECH provides access and opportunity for underrepresented students in New Jersey’s comprehensive high schools to an education in an in-demand STEM career pathway by participating in an industry-driven career pathway program where they can earn a high school diploma and a postsecondary degree, while they gain valuable employability skills.


In 2018, Governor Murphy awarded $900,000 to three school districts to develop and implement
P-TECH programs. The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is proud to support the P-TECH grantees as they improve educational outcomes for all students.
