Welcome to the PHS Career & Tech Website!
Pottstown School District is proud to offer students in grades 10 through 12 a career and technical education (CTE), along with the rigorous academic foundation needed for success after high school. Students who successfully complete one of Pottstown’s CTE programs are prepared for employment and post-secondary education, often having already earned college credits.
Pottstown High School is unique in that CTE programs are offered within the same building as academic classes; therefore, Pottstown High School’s students do not need to be transported elsewhere for their technical education. Our students are not subjected to the scheduling conflicts, variant or repeated lessons, or missed extra-curricular activities that may concern students in other districts.
Career and technical education affords students the opportunity to study math, science, and English in a real world application, including actual projects within the Pottstown community. Students further demonstrate their skills on state-mandated, standardized tests. Students strive for advanced performance in both their academic and technical programs.
Career and Technical Education is not the vocational shops of yesterday. The technological advancements in all careers have led to significant changes in CTE. Post-secondary opportunities for CTE students are numerous. A student interested in attending a four-year college should research Career and Technical Education programs. CTE programs offer a solid background for most college majors.
It is an honor to be a part of Pottstown School District, particularly Pottstown High School’s CTE program!
