The Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore City is an innovative school-to-industry pipeline in STEM fields. Originally created by IBM, the program is a local partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine, Kaiser Permanente, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Baltimore City Community College and the Baltimore City Public Schools. The P-TECH program simultaneously enrolls students into high school and college as they enter the 9th grade while placing them on a career trajectory to Healthcare jobs identified by industry partners. P-TECH allows students to set four, five and six year goals to complete both degrees that are awarded when all Associate degree requirements are satisfied. Read more about Johns Hopkins and P-Tech.
