Kimball E-TECH

Excellence and Innovation in Every Design

Kimball E-TECH at Mountain View College: A Dallas ISD Collegiate Academy

E-TECH is not a traditional pathway or concurrent enrollment program. The model is unique in that it helps ensure students receive an industry-recognized degree, not just college credits. This is earned at no cost to the student, and presents an opportunity to confront low college completion rates. Additionally the clear connection between school work and careers, and the opportunities for paid internships, mentorships, and job shadowing, only encourage students to complete the program Students will earn a high school diploma, industry-recognized certificates, and an Associate’s degree, all while gaining relevant professional experience. Upon graduation, students can choose to continue their studies at a four-year school, or to enter the workforce with industry connections and the skills for well paying, middle class jobs

Kimball E-TECH Class of 2022!
