11th grade students will continue on a pathway of their choice. They have an opportunity to switch pathways.
If an 11th grade student plans to attend PPSC (Pikes Peak State College) for the two-year tuition-free program (course materials and textbooks paid for by the student), PTEC will provide concurrent enrollment classes to get them started with college life while still attending high school classes at PTEC.
12th grade students will be able to attend PPSC part-time (minimum of 7 credits hour per semester) and finish their PTEC graduation requirement classes at the same time.
PTEC seniors now have the option of attending PTEC classes and working part-time in a trade. Students will have specific requirements to take part in this program (work based).
