Pikes Peak Prep, an eight year old Colorado Springs public charter school located near downtown, will offer students who are high school aged up to age 21, the opportunity to attend high school classes from 5-9 each evening to earn their high school degree AND will pay tuition for students to enroll in Pikes Peak Community College and/or other local higher education institutions, as well as cover the cost of the college textbooks.

With help from key community organizations, Pikes Peak Prep (PPP) will expand enrollment from 290 students last year to an approximate enrollment of 360 on the first day of school this year (August 13, 2012). The school will now have the ability to nearly double its enrollment in the coming years thanks to a donation of eight portable classroom buildings from The Classical Academy, a charter school in District 20.

Pikes Peak Prep was recognized by the Colorado State Board of Education as a School Recipient of the 2011 Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award winner. The award was given in recognition of the school’s “demonstration of outstanding student growth on Colorado’s 2010-2011 School Performance Framework.”

Pikes Peak Prep charter school (K-12) has experienced steady growth over the past few years. A 42% improvement in the 3rd grade reading scores over the past four years marked one of the top growth scores in Colorado Springs. Third grade students were able to increase their proficiency scores over the past year by 4% and 19% in partial proficiency.
