Specialty Programs

Specialty programs focus on career exploration, subject area concentration, and college/university preparation. Prince William County Public Schools provides excellent opportunities for students in elementary, middle, and high school to explore a wide variety of special programs in our schools. These specialty programs give students the chance to investigate careers ranging from building trades to advanced computer science.

High School Programs
