Our Approach

The academic framework of Tech focuses on increasing Social Emotional Learning (SEL)  and academic success in every student through integrating college preparation, leadership skills and academic counseling. SEL is a process through which individuals develop the fundamental skills to have healthy selves, relationships and decisions. Developing these fundamental skills in our students increases their ability to effectively and ethically connect across race, class, age, culture, language, gender identity, sexual orientation and learning needs of all persons.
