• Alert:

    Pike Family,

    Out of extreme caution for our staff and students, all MSD of Pike Township schools will start on August 11, 2020, with remote or virtual learning until Labor Day at which time a review of COVID-19 data will be used to determine whether schools can open for in-person instruction. Due to our delayed start, expect adjustments to our previously scheduled Fall and Thanksgiving Break schedules.
    If it becomes necessary to pause in-person learning at any time, we will move to remote learning.

The Pike Career & STEM Center (PCSC) is not an “either/or” choice. If a PCSC program is related to a student’s career goal, it will benefit that student to enroll in the PCSC. All PCSC programs offer dual college credit opportunities. Each year, PCSC students earn college credits and industry recognized certifications.

Students have opportunity to earn up to 3 high school credits each semester.

How do PCSC students get to and from PCSC each day?

Are students charged tuition to attend PCSC?
No! There is no tuition charge for attending PCSC. While there is no tuition charge, most programs require minimal lab/kit/uniform fees.
