    Our Mission
    Starting with the 2015-16 school year, we have united Edison Career and Technology High School in the City School District, poised to be a positive force in the Rochester and Finger Lakes regional economy.
    Edison Tech students take rigorous academic and technical coursework along with work-based learning in four distinct career pathways. Our mission is to ensure that an Edison Tech graduate is exceptionally well prepared for jobs in high-demand, rewarding career fields.
    Career Pathways are central to that mission. The four pathways are: Construction/Architecture and DesignEngineering and ManufacturingDigital Media, and P-Tech. At the heart of all of these pathways is the theory of linked learning, where students have the opportunity not just to gain education in the classroom but also from hands-on training and on-the-job experiences.
    The bedrock for our pathways approach to education is the idea of linked learning which ties academics, technical training, work-based learning, and support services to create a valuable and relevant education that will inform and excite students.
