PCTI is an excellent high school for both students who know a particular trade or career they are interested in and for those who are still exploring. This high school now features over 16 academies/schools (nicknamed shops) such as the Academy of Finance, Academy of Medical Arts, School of Cosmetology, School of Business, Automotive Technology, and School of Performing Arts. PCTI prides itself with its availability of an wide variety of sports and other extra-curricular activities.

At PCTI there are many great resources for any student.
