The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Early College High School Initiative has supported the creation or redesign of nearly 300 schools that serve more than 80,000 students in 31 states and the District of Columbia since 2002. Even more schools and districts have taken on this early college high school design challenge outside the auspices of the Gates Foundation. The exact design of these schools varies based on partnerships between schools and local colleges, but the foundational concept is that students can graduate from high school with a college credential as well.

GARY — Core'Von Lott was playing basketball inside the gym at 21st Century a couple of summers ago when his phone rang. It was his mother, who told him he had been accepted as a student into the Gary charter school.  Lott was working out at the time with Eugene German, the prolific scorer who graduated last June and is now starring at Northern Illinois.

PPP: Associate's Degree Graduate May 2017

on Tuesday, 28 February 2017 18:11

Meet Nathan Hook.  Nathan is a senior at Pikes Peak Prep, a 12-year-old charter school located in Colorado Springs. Nathan graduates from PPP this May having earned both his high school diploma AND 61 college credits--his two-year Associate Degree from Pikes Peak Community College--while attending PPP.  Nathan is proof positive that we can expect more from our students before they graduate from high school.  He is proof positive that Coloradans can expect more from their K12 tax dollars.  Nathan, has received a K14 education with K12 dollars.  He is proof positive that PPP works.

Nathan plans to go on to complete his four year college degree in history and then his master's degree.  He plans to teach and he wants to continue mentoring our students.

Pikes Peak Prep offers a unique early college program.  We go beyond the idea of college prep and actually provide our students college experience.  We believe it is extremely important for our students to receive college experience, on the college campus, while they are with us in our high school so that they gain the confidence and maturity to be successful when they graduate from our school.  So far, that is working.  While not every student earns an Associate Degree while in our high school, most earn 15 to 30 college credits.  Every credit they earn is a step toward college completion and step closer to success.

Pikes Peak Prep covers the cost of college tuition, textbooks and transportation for our students.  

Nathan is the second student to graduate from PPP having earned his Associate Degree.  And we are just getting started!  Onward!


The past few weeks have been filled with terrific school pride events that often don't get talked about in the media so I thought I would share these five pictures with you directly.  

In Baton Rouge, our January board meeting featured  performances from our cheerleaders and dance team.  Our Baton Rouge school serves grades K-4 this year. 

Our nation’s capital is full of countless tales of humble servants who began their terms on an improbable journey to impactful American leadership.
