  • What is the Advanced Manufacturing PTECH Academy?

    Bastrop ISD's Advanced Manufacturing P-TECH Academy is hosted at Cedar Creek High School and is built through partnerships between BISD, Austin Community College, and local business partners - which currently include Yerico Manufacturing, Dovetail Custom Wood & Metal, and The Boring Company. Throughout their time in the Advanced Manufacturing Academy (AMA), students will be supported through mentoring, course and career guidance, and academic tutoring as necessary. Students will be placed into cohorts of up to 50 students, which will allow for quality community and relationship building with their peers. This program is open to all students and is designed to support the success of every student who participates.

    AMA students will have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, an industry recognized Production Technician certification, and a Level 1 Certificate at ACC.  In the AMA, students will learn about all aspects of the advanced manufacturing industry - including Manufacturing Processes, DC Circuits, Technical Drafting, Automated Manufacturing, Programmable Logic Controllers, and Computer Aided Manufacturing.  Students and families can learn more about the courses and content provided by ACC by visiting: https://bit.ly/AMAACC 

    BISD’s advanced manufacturing partners will provide work-place learning experiences on CCH campus and in their factory / workshop settings. AMA students will interact with our business partners each year, and upon successful completion of the program, these employers will be eager to interview and hopefully hire AMA graduates. 

    Students who wish to continue their education after graduating from the AMA may do so at ACC or another institution and will be multiple semesters ahead of non Academy peers.
