PPA Overview

High School Mission Statement

The mission of the Pike Preparatory Academy High School is to provide Pike High School seniors an alternative setting and opportunity to obtain a diploma at a pace more relevant to their individual lifestyles. These students are either behind in earned credits or face circumstances that hinder their success in the traditional school setting. Pike Preparatory Academy is an extension of Pike High School. Therefore students remain active as Pike High School students, but they take their courses in the alternative setting until they meet the requirements necessary to earn a Pike High School Diploma. All students who meet the graduation requirements participate in the Pike High School Graduation Ceremony at the conclusion of the school year.
