• Exciting New Pathways for Peekskill Students: P-Tech and Smart Scholars Programs

    The Peekskill City School District is thrilled to announce two transformative opportunities for our students: the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-Tech) and the Smart Scholars Early College programs. Thanks to prestigious grants from the New York State Education Department, students entering 9th grade can now embark on unique educational journeys leading to academic excellence and career success—all at no cost to their families!

    What is the Selection Process and When Do I Find Out?

    The Early College Committee will conduct a selection process upon receipt of all applications and after applicant interviews have been concluded. Selected students are required to attend the Summer Bridge program. Students who meet the requirements but who are not selected will be placed on a waiting list. Should a slot become available before the start of the school year, it will be offered to a student from the waitlist.
