OUR SCHOOL STRUCTURE

WHAT WE OFFER

Polk Pre – Collegiate Academy (PPCA) is an innovative, college preparatory public charter school serving 9th & 10th grade students in Polk County. We offer a rigorous honors – level courses and certification programs in a challenging, yet supportive learning environment.

Students attending PPCA are academically focused and have the opportunity to participate in the dual enrollment program through our partnership with Polk State College. The dual enrollment program provides students with the opportunity to meet their high school graduation requirements while receiving credits toward their college degree.

We offer two certification programs: Microsoft Office Specialist and Autodesk AutoCAD (CAD). Students receiving a certification will have skills to enter the challenging workforce as they are equipped with skills to secure positions and paygrades above those of regular high school diplomas.

To help with completing assignments and studying for tests, students may elect to stay after school each day M-F for study hall. This provides students with a quiet atmosphere where they can complete their assignments and find extra help or tutoring for a specific subject or assignment.

In addition to the academic program, we also provide our students with taking the PERT throughout their 10th grade year, in preparation for completing their studies at the college level.

We invite all students to join our program, where they can attain the skills needed for a successful future!
