Pathways to Early College High Schools Program (P-TECH)
P-TECH is a new type of school that brings together the best elements of high school, college, and the professional world.
It is a model that allows students to earn a high school diploma, as well as a no-cost Associate degree. The Colorado BioScience Institute acts as a company liaison for the P-TECH program at Frederick High School, Warrior Tech. The Warrior Tech program prepares students for biotech carriers and is a partnership between St Vrain Valley School District (Frederick High School), Aims Community College and industry partners.
Our industry partners: Agilent Technologies, KBI Biopharma, Novartis Gene Therapies and Tolmar.
This program includes significant mentorship and internship opportunities with our industry partners; giving students a head start on their careers after completing the program. Students enroll in 9th grade and complete the program in 4-6 years at which points they are prepared to enter the biotech workforce.
“Agilent Technologies is proud to invest in Colorado’s future biotech workforce. We are inspired by the commitment and dedication of the P-TECH students. It’s an honor to mentor these students for several years and support their learning and growth."
