Despite the value of a high school education, there are about 1.2 million students who drop out of high school in the United States every year. For many of these students, dropping out of school may seem like the only choice, because public schools are unable to accommodate the circumstances that might keep students out of school. PPEP Tec High School works to address some of these common issues, which are discussed in more detail below.
Lack of transportation
Being unable to get to school is a big problem for students, especially in rural districts where schools may be a considerable distance away from a student’s home. In most areas surrounding PPEP Tec’s schools, we are able to provide free transportation.
Inability to afford tuition
There are several issues that students might face in public schools, such as large class sizes, lack of individual instruction, and rigid scheduling. Private and charter schools offer solutions to these problems, but these schools can have high tuition rates that prevent many students from attending the programs that would benefit them. PPEP Tec High School has free tuition for all students and opportunities for dual enrollment and accelerated learning.
Work or family obligations
Students who are responsible for caring for other family members or students who have kids may not be able to attend high school in a conventional learning environment with a daytime schedule. Students who have to work to support themselves or their families face similar challenges when it comes to their school schedule. That’s why several of our locations offer both day and night sessions to help students work around their other obligations while attaining an official high school diploma.

In the 2015-16 school year, we have rolled out Accelerated Blended Learning Programs, which utilize technology-based learning to give students even more flexibility in their education.
