What is West-Mec?
West-MEC Central Programs are Career and Technical Education programs offered at the West-MEC career campuses, partnering community college campuses, and member district high schools. Business and industry partners support West-MEC Central Programs. These programs equip students with relevant skills and working industry knowledge to propel students in their future careers and higher learning endeavors. Students will have opportunities to earn industry certification, college credit, and internships. These programs do not follow a typical high school schedule and students are responsible for transportation to various West-MEC, community colleges, and other high school campuses for their preferred program.
High school students residing in the West-MEC district boundaries and attending school in member districts, charter schools, private schools, or homeschooling are eligible to participate in West-MEC Central Programs. It is important to note that all PHHS students must be enrolled at PHHS in conjunction with individual West-MEC program requirements. Furthermore, not all program session times will work with the PHHS daily schedule.
Please see your school counselor prior to submitting your application to discuss session availability. Credits earned through West-MEC programs may be used to fulfill the initial CTE graduation requirement. All subsequent West-MEC credits will transfer to PHHS as elective credit.
