At Edison High School, we believe that every student can achieve at high levels, and we provide rigor across a variety of programs to ensure that students are being challenged in their area of interest. We provide a unique learning opportunity for students through our endorsements of business & industry, public service, STEM, health professions, and multidisciplinary studies.

Students enrolled in the P-TECH at Thomas Edison High School combine high school and college-level courses to earn a post-secondary degree or post-secondary credentials, including an associate degree in Business Administration, associate of applied science in Accounting Technologies, or Level 1 Certificate. Industry partners provide career mentoring, host site visits, offer internships to enrolled students, serve on advisory councils to improve the alignment of programming with workforce needs, and ensure that students graduate career ready. Students follow workforce pathways aligned with high demand, high-wage business fields. P-TECH at Thomas Edison High School eliminates thousands of dollars in college tuition costs for our students.

  • High school and college-level courses towards post-secondary degree or credentials from San Antonio College
