Beliefs

In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama praises 9-14 school P-TECH, located in Brooklyn, and challenges the country to create more programs like this. Energy Tech accepted that challenge!

At Energy Tech, we believe that our collaboration between a high school, higher education, and industry will provide our students a seamless transition to college and careers. We feel confident that the 9-14 program we are building for students is informed by current need in our local job market, and by what will be expected of students in college. We believe that by providing high school students with college and career coursework—leading up to an AAS degree, free of cost to families—we are providing a unique pathway to prosperity.

We believe that our work is a community approach. We expect families to learn more about 9-14 model so that they can better support their children with the work ahead. There will be challenging coursework during the school year, but also enriching projects, internships, and additional coursework offered after school, on Saturdays, and over summers. We expect a great deal more than the basic requirements for a high school diploma, and that is because we are preparing our students for very competitive employment in energy and engineering, and demanding post-secondary studies. We are deeply committed to providing new opportunities to access college and careers, and also to providing a sustainable pipeline of STEM talent for our city.
