High School Students

Perhaps you learned about PTI and our career focused programs when we visited your high school. Maybe a guidance counselor or teacher told you about former students who graduated from PTI and now have jobs they love. Possibly you found us on your own through a Google search or by talking to friends, relatives or an employer.

No matter how you learned about PTI, making the right decision for you is important to finding Success Your Way.

Our faculty and the professionals in our Career Services Department will do everything they can to help, guide and encourage you, to make it possible for you to reach your full potential. But in the end, it really is up to you to make it happen.

If you're a senior...

Beginning the summer before your senior year and during the next 12 months you can visit our campus any time. We want to meet you and your family. Schedule a campus visit or a time with us when we visit your neighborhood. When we meet, we can tell you about PTI, our programs, and some of the grants and scholarships we offer high school students.
