STEM and CTE in PCSD

The Park City School District offers an incredible array of STEM and CTE classes, with many programs supported or completely funded by PCEF.

In fact, PCEF was born in 1986 when a science teacher at Park City High requested funding to send two of her students to a space camp at Stanford!  We have provided funding for hundreds of STEM grants since then, including the groundbreaking elementary coding programs started in 2015.

Click here to see a complete list of the current PCSD CTE offerings, which include many concurrent enrollment classes (meaning your student can receive college credit!) at TMJH/PCHS.

Scroll below to see a list of STEM programs PCEF donors help fund.  Below that is a more comprehensive PCSD STEM offerings list.
