Project Spotlight: Tech Valley High School

Capital Region students who attend Tech Valley High School (TVHS) are more excited than ever to head back to class this September. That's because they'll be the first to attend Tech Valley's brand new, cutting-edge facility, construction of which is nearing completion on the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) campus in Albany. Thanks in part to $1.5 million in funding awarded through the Capital Region Economic Development Council, TVHS is relocating to a new two-story, 25,000-square-foot building on the Albany NanoTech megaplex, significantly enhancing its mission to serve as a regional public high school focusing on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and prepare students for careers in the 21st century global economy. More than 140 students are enrolled for fall 2014, with the freshman class at capacity.

A joint venture of Capital Region BOCES and Questar III BOCES, TVHS provides a unique educational environment for the region’s students to learn the relevance and applications of science and technology in everyday life. Co-location at the Nano College will provide students with access to state-of-the-art facilities and unlimited opportunities for project-based learning. The ability to integrate CNSE faculty, staff and research partners into everyday curriculum will create a unique and unrivaled innovation-based education model, enabling a seamless transition of TVHS students to university-level studies in STEM fields.
