Lenape Tech is a comprehensive career and technical school offering training in 16 technical areas. Students in the Apollo-Ridge, Armstrong, Freeport, and Leechburg school districts may attend Lenape Tech full-time for two years (11th & 12th grade). Lenape students receive training in both their chosen technical field and in complementary academic disciplines.
Today, employers demand technical skills and Lenape Tech delivers with 16 different course options that promote hands-on learning and the use of state-of-art technology.
Lenape Tech’s technical curricula is designed in part by business leaders known as Advisory Committees and taught by educators who have industry experience. Lenape Tech also partners with local businesses and industry to offer students work-based experiences such as co-op, apprenticeship, internship and job shadowing opportunities.
Lenape Tech is currently piloting a hybrid delivery system for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, to determine if attending Lenape for a portion of their school day is conducive to their interests and needs. During the 2011 / 2012 school year, students have elected to spend from two to four hours of their school day at Lenape. Some participate only in a technical program, while others participate in their technical program and one or two of Lenape’s academic courses, based on individual need, graduation requirements, and challenges, such as transportation time and varying daily schedules.
