Pikes Peak Community College:
Each semester, our high school students take the Accuplacer test–a college placement exam that designates when they are scoring as ready to engage in college level work. Upon scoring into college level classes, students begin earning college credits while still in high school by taking classes at Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC). Pikes Peak Prep pays for tuition, fees, and books, as well as transports students to either the PPCC Centennial or Downtown campus for classes. In addition to traditional college classes, in 11th grade, students can also choose a Career Start path to explore college level instruction in programs not limited to: Auto Service Technology, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Cyber Security, Health Career Exploration, Multimedia Graphic Design, Radio and TV, Welding, and Zoo Keeping. As concurrent enrollment students, our students have access to all of PPCC’s resources, such as tutoring in the Learning Commons, advising, library materials, and quiet study areas. With this partnership, Pikes Peak Prep students graduate with free college credits and have opportunities to earn degree certificates and associate degrees.

Pikes Peak Prep students engage with college-aged volunteers from Colorado College’s education program in order to access tutoring services during the day, as well as during Extended Learning Time. These student volunteers work with PPP students on skills for reading, writing, and math and set positive examples as mentors for students.
