On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration I want to welcome you and your child to Passaic County Technical Institute - where learning has no limit. Our mission is to promote educational excellence by challenging our students to become knowledgeable, productive and socially conscious members of a global society through quality educational programs delivered by a highly skilled and dedicated staff in a nurturing environment.

I am honored to serve our students, faculty, and staff as principal of PCTI - a high school rich in history, legacy, and innovation. As principal, I pledge to uphold and respect the honored traditions, to further the educational and professional expectations and wishes of the entire school community, and pursue my personal commitment to offering our students and faculty cutting-edge learning and teaching opportunities as they prepare for life in the 21st century. In short, we aspire to be the ideal school for everyone in the community.

In keeping with our mission, we offer our students unique learning opportunities through each of our fourteen programs and in every academic discipline. We also aim to provide the students with every possible opportunity to contribute to our positive climate and nurturing culture through participation in clubs and student activities.
