Aldine ISD is multiplying opportunities for high school students to earn a college degree and be career ready at no personal cost to their families in a partnership with the Lone Star College (LSC), BakerRipley and industry partners. Through these partnerships, AISD will open Avalos P-TECH School just in time for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The school will share space with Lone Star College-East Aldine Campus, which is located on an 80,000-square-foot-site at the East Aldine Town Center (2430 Aldine Mail Rte. Houston, TX 77039).
Students who attend will be dual enrolled in high school and college courses through LSC starting their ninth grade year. By the end of their senior year, students will graduate with a high school diploma, an associate’s degree, and workforce certificates.
Due to the focus on college readiness and programs of study, Avalos P-TECH School will not offer UIL activities such as athletics, band, choir, etc. P-TECH School students may not take part in such activities at another Aldine ISD campus.
Students will have access to mentors, internships, workforce skill workshops, and job shadowing from across their industry of interest.
Superintendent LaTonya M. Goffney believes that the opening of Avalos P-TECH is another opportunity to give Aldine ISD students a choice in how they complete K-12 education in Aldine. Students will choose one of four career pathways and take courses that provide academic, technical and workplace skills.
“With the P–TECH model, we will bring the brightest educators and experienced industry leaders together,” said Goffney. “This model ensures that we prepare our students for well–paying careers once they graduate high school.”
Note: Avalos P-TECH School will not offer UIL activities such as athletics, band, choir, etc. P-TECH students may not take part in such activities at another Aldine ISD campus.
In collaboration with industry partners and LSC, the school will offer four program study options and degree plans for students.
