Learn about specialty program options

PWCS families are invited to join us for Prince William County’s School Specialty Program Information Nights. Virtually, families can investigate the variety of programs available to middle school and high school students. 

The Specialty Program Information Nights inform students and families about Advanced Academic and Specialty Programs (AASP), as well as Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs available in PWCS. The evening begins with a general session at 7 p.m., followed by breakout sessions for individual programs. All grade-level -appropriate programs will be represented each night. Once you have completed the sign-up, you will receive a reply email with the Zoom link for the main session. The links for the individual sessions will be emailed to you prior to the session date.

For more detailed program information and application details, please visit the AASP and CTE webpages.
