  • Chicago P-TECH Graduates Its First Students Early

    Chicago P-TECH Graduates Its First Students Early

    Date added: 2017-06-01

    Nine young women and men earned their associate degrees in technology from Daley College at the commencement held by the City Colleges of Chicago at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL on May 13, 2017. These young trailblazers are Chicago’s first early graduates of Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy, an innovative education model that launched in 2012 in partnership with Chicago Public Schools, Daley College, and IBM. The program gives students the option to complete a six-year program with both a high school diploma and an associate degree in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Some of the graduates, such as Anissa Del Rio and Marcos Montero (second and fourth from left), will finish the program in as little as four years, getting their college degrees four and a half weeks before receiving their high school diplomas. The IBM-inspired P-TECH schools are designed to open new pathways to better prepare young people for college and for “new collar” careers in some of the nation’s fast-growing fields that require sought-after skills that can be learned through innovative public education models like P-TECH, which IBM pioneered. There are currently nearly 60 P-TECH schools in six states across the US. IBM is committed to work with educators and businesses to create an additional 20 schools in the U.S. by this year’s end.
