Philadelphia Electrical & Technology Charter High School
Main Contact: Ms. Erin Dougherty
Founded in 2002 by International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 98. Philadelphia Electrical & Technology Charter High School offers a comprehensive high school experience for 600 students. Our school is located in the middle of Center City Philadelphia, a block away from City Hall. Our center city location allows students from all over Philadelphia to attend our school. Our goal is to prepare our students to enter the career fields of their choice in a variety of ways, either through pursuit of apprenticeships at IBEW Local 98, attendance at two or four year colleges, direct employment in those industries following graduation, or some combination of those paths. PE&T prepares students to become motivated, confident, technically proficient, disciplined, academically sound, age/grade appropriate students. Our educational program continues to stand out as a unique offering in the Philadelphia area –a capstone Cooperative Education Program, with students participating in both college and career preparation in equal measures. A key element of our programming is to help our students develop the skills necessary to become leaders in the work place, as well as in the community.
