Highlight on Ms. McCallister!

on Monday, 09 March 2015

Here at Pikes Peak Prep we encourage our teachers to use cross-curricular instruction in their classroom. Cross-curricular instruction is a teaching technic that combines two or more subjects by using information from one subject to generate an assignment for another subject. A perfect example of this can be seen right now in our first grade class room.

Highlight on PPP Scholar Cruz Martinez!

on Thursday, 26 February 2015

Pikes Peak Prep is proud to offer our high school scholars several different options to earn college credits. While attending high school, our scholars can earn credits from Pikes Peak Community College or by participating in an Area Vocational Program (AVP) at Pikes Peak Community College. While attending an AVP class, scholars can earn not only college credit but a certification allowing them to find employment in their studied field. One scholar taking advantage of this is Cruzito Cruz Martinez.

At Pikes Peak Prep we put an emphasis on preparing our scholars to continue their education by going to college. This is done by teaching a more rigorous curriculum and encouraging our scholars to take advantage of either our concurrent enrollment at Pikes Peak Community College or taking advantage of an Area Vocational Program (AVP) while still in high school.

Highlight on Scholar Jordan Abbott!

on Thursday, 18 December 2014

Pikes Peak Prep Senior, Jordan Abbott, is excited about a new opportunity that has been presented to him. Just a few days ago, Jordan received his acceptance letter to McPherson College in Kansas. Along with the acceptance, Jordan was offered a $40,000 scholarship. This scholarship is based on a persons academics students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale and score at least an 18 or higher on the American College Test (ACT). At seventeen years old, this is quite the accomplishment for Jordan and the Pikes Peak Prep staff and community could not be more proud and excited for him, especially considering all of the obstacles he has overcome these past few years.
