ECHS and CTHS (8th grade Students)

The application for the Career and Technical HS and the Early College HS are open until January 9, 2022.

The Dr. Kirk Lewis Career and Technical High School is a school of choice high school for students in grades 9-12 in the Pasadena Independent School District. Students from all PISD intermediate and high school campuses are welcome to apply to CTHS and select a career and technical education pathway from over twenty different program offerings. Many of these pathways provide the opportunity to earn an industry-recognized certification. Students from CTHS will be provided industry-standard training using industry-standard equipment in preparation for future career pathways. We strive to provide unique educational experiences for all students in order to prepare them for continuation into post high school education at both the college and university level, as well as outstanding training and preparation for those students selecting to enter the workforce directly upon high school graduation.

Early College High Schools provide students with a seamless pathway from high school to college. Students take college courses, along with their high school classes, which give them the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and an Associate Degree from San Jacinto College. In ECHS, students begin taking two college classes in ninth grade and progress by taking more college classes each year. By their senior year, most students are nearly finished with their high school requirements and are ready to focus on a full college schedule. Pasadena ISD ECHS is a school within a school model, which means that freshmen and sophomores take their college classes on the comprehensive high school campus, and juniors and seniors take classes at San Jacinto College.
