Explore Arlington ISD 2022 - included P-TECH programs
Posted in on October 5, 2022

Circle your calendars for Tuesday, Oct. 25.

That’s when the window for enrolling students for specialized programs for the 2022-23 school year opens.

And what better way to kick off that window than with a big event. And this year’s Explore Arlington ISD is bigger than ever.

That’s what happens when you continue to provide new opportunities for students.

This year’s Explore Arlington ISD in-person event is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 25, for 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center.

Explore New Opportunities

Explore Arlington ISD gives students and parents a chance to find out about all the specialized programs the district offers. For the 2022-23 school year, that will include two more options with the new Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) early college high schools opening at Sam Houston and Seguin high schools.

Both will have the school within a school model like the P-TECH programs at Bowie and Lamar high schools. Students will be able to participate in traditional high school activities while also having the chance to earn an associate degree and prepare for a career in a specific field thanks to the support of an industry partner.

P-TECH at Sam Houston students will focus on a pathway in logistics and manufacturing. P-TECH at Seguin students will focus on mechanical engineering and computer-aided design.

“Our district provides students exceptional opportunities to pursue their passion, wherever that path takes them,” Arlington ISD superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “These are two more outlets for students to follow their passion. We want our students to be engaged, and these offerings, like the others at our Explore Arlington ISD event, provide that opportunity.” 

Explore Arlington ISD will also give parents and students a chance to talk to representatives from Corey and Jones academies of fine arts and dual languages, Crow Leadership Academy, Pearcy STEM Academy, Wimbish World Language Academy, Gunn Junior High and Fine Arts and Dual Language Academy, Arlington College and Career High School, Arlington Collegiate High School, the STEM Academy at Martin High School as well as our four P-TECH schools.

Representatives from the CTC and the Center for Visual and Performing Arts will be there as well. Plus, you can get questions answered about everything from pre-K to dual credit classes.
