FM and HFM PTECH Enhance Partnership to Include Intercollegiate Athletics

Posted: May 9, 2022 — Fulton-Montgomery Community College and HFM PTECH have enhanced their partnership agreement to allow PTECH students to be eligible for intercollegiate athletics beginning in the Fall 2022 sports season.

Fulton-Montgomery Community College competes in the NJCAA Division 3 and encompasses 15 men’s and women’s sports throughout 3 seasons.  FM’s Athletic Director is Kevin Jones.  “FMCC is excited to be able to include P-Tech students next year into our athletic program.  These new student/athletes will definitely help increase numbers in our programs.  We look forward to helping these students become Raiders” stated Jones.

PTECH, or Pathways in Technology Early College High School, is a 6-year program that incorporates project based learning and professional skills training as students work toward their 2-year degree from Fulton- Montgomery Community College or SUNY Cobleskill (depending on the degree pathway) at no cost to their families.  “At PTECH, we’re very excited about this expansion of opportunity for our students at FMCC. We believe that participation in college athletics leads to increased retention and graduate rates. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with FM to support our future student-athletes” stated Matthew Davis, PTECH Principal.

FM and PTECH work to build an all-around college experience beyond academics.  This opportunity will allow students to continue the sports they have played in their home district at FM while completing their Associates degree.  Eligible students must have met all requirements to graduate from high school and have exhausted their eligibility to participate in high school athletics.  The NJCAA will review requests individually and issue eligibility on a case-by-case basis. If interested in joining the PTECH program, please reach out to Matthew Davis, PTECH Principal, at MDavis@HFMBOCES.org.
