Tech Prep is funded though the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act, and is a significant innovation in the education reform movement in the United States.
Tech Prep education is an articulated, planned sequence of study beginning in high school, and extending through at least two years of postsecondary education or an apprenticeship program. Programs can continue up to the Baccalaureate degree.
Emphasizing contextual learning and career pathways, Tech Prep is an important school-to-work transition strategy, helping all students make the connection between school and employment.
