• Cheyenne - My high school career has certainly not been easy, but then again, who doesn’t struggle in high school. Before coming to Pikes Peak Academy, I never wanted to go to school; I rarely understood my classes and the teachers were no help. Since coming to PPA, I’ve overcome so many struggles and met an extremely diverse group of welcoming and accepting people. The teachers here devote as much time as possible to help students and get to know them as people too; that is something truly great, I think.
  • Bree - School has never been somewhere I felt I fit in until I started attending PPA this year. I’ve learned so much about myself, furthered my education, and met so many great people in such a short time. A year ago, I couldn’t have even imagined or thought I could achieve my goal to join the military and eventually become a park ranger or game warden. I know with what I’ve learned here and the amazing people in my life, I can achieve anything I put my mind to.
  • Miguel - My year has been unimaginable! When I first came to Pikes Peak Academy, it was hard for me to accept how nice, generous, and helpful the people were. My first year was a little rough; I needed to learn to control my anger. That’s when (PPA’s staff and my parents) helped me through my school years here at Pikes Peak Academy, and I would like to thank them all!

  • Jason - When I first started at PPA, I was angry at myself. Seeing that I couldn’t go to a public high school made me upset. But after only a month of being here I saw PPA in a completely different light. The teachers here are more supportive than any teachers I’ve come across at any public school. They’re willing to work with you not only for school but also any personal problems you might have. Being here at PPA for the past two years has allowed me to consider the teachers and friends I’ve made as family.
  • Brittani - I came to PPA as a sophomore because no other high school would take me. I decided to stay here because I really like the curriculum. At a normal high school, you are expected to learn at the same level as everybody else. Here at PPA, you can work at your own pace and level. I want to thank all the teachers who have helped me throughout my years here. I also want to thank Mr. and Mrs. B for pushing me to pursue work and college. I am now working full- time, and I’m going to be a Mountain Lion at UCCS!
