• Dekaney High School

    The Pathways in Technology Early College High (P-TECH) at Dekaney High School is making its debut during the 2021-22 school year with its first cohort of 9th-grade students. 

    Through a partnership with Lone Star College - North Harris, the program is designed to lead to both a high school degree and Associate of Science Degree with licenses in computer programming. The goal is to prepare students for higher education opportunities, as well as employment, through internships and hands-on experiences. 

    Key areas of study include computer programming, coding, animation and gaming. The program will give preference to students zoned to Dekaney High School but is also open to other students as space allows. Recruitment for the first cohort of students will begin during the 2020-21 school year with the objective of adding one grade per year.

    Stay tuned for more details.
