Career & Technical Education Programs


  • Technical College High School (TCHS): Pickering Campus - The Chester County Technical College High School (TCHS) is a public high school specializing in career and technical education for students in grades 9-12. Our programs prepare students for success in college, the workplace and life. All of our career and technical programs are aligned to both Pennsylvania State Standards and national industry certifications. Upon successful completion of a career and technical education course of study, students receive a profile of the standards they have studied and mastered. In addition, a competency certificate is issued to each graduate that lists the number of skills mastered and the level of proficiency in each skill. The Technical College High School is operated by the Chester County Intermediate Unit on behalf of Chester County's 12 public school districts.

    Students Occupationally and Academically Ready (SOAR) -  this the career and technical Program of Study (POS) educational plan that articulates the secondary career and technical programs to postsecondary degree or diploma or certificate programs. SOAR programs lead students into a career pathway that align the secondary courses to a postsecondary program to complete a degree or certificate.
