P>TECH is an innovative partnership between Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Front Range Community College, and Lumen. Students start their college coursework during their freshmen year and will finish their degree at Front Range Community college for free. As such, students graduate with both a high school diploma and an industry-recognized associate degree in Computer Information Systems, in addition to gaining relevant workplace skills.
Students receive intensive student support services, in addition to mentoring, job shadowing, internships, pre-apprenticeships, and other workplace educational experiences. Students may also earn pre-apprenticeship certificates and other industry-recognized certificates in addition to an associate degree. After successful completion of the first semester of the third year, all P>TECH students will earn their Application Specialist Certificate.
P>TECH is open to all students, with a special focus on encouraging enrollment of students who are socio-economically and racially diverse, the first to attend college in their family, English language learners, and students with disabilities.

“This program not only covered the entire expense of my Application Specialist Certificate, but now I have an apprenticeship with CenturyLink that is supporting my higher education and training. I highly recommend every student look into this program!”
