The Portage Community Education Center serves as a broad umbrella for a variety
of programs: Community High School, Students on Campus Care, Adult High School
Completion, Curious Kids Daycare Center, Enriched for Life, and ESL. All of these
PPS programs are exceptional, but what really makes them unique is that they
coexist so successfully and happily in a shared facility. As with any successful
program, it is the staff that somehow turns challenges into opportunities and
makes the Community Education Center not only a great resource for the Greater
Portage Schools Community, but also a great place to work.
Students at Community High School complete the same Michigan Merit
Curriculum as all other students in the district and receive a Portage
Public Schools high school diploma upon completion.
The Community Education Center won "District of the Year" by the Michigan
Alternative & Adult Education Association for 2006. This was the second time
Community Education has been honored with this award. We are also proud to
have multiple-time M.I.A.A.A. State Champion volleyball teams, championship
softball teams, and a school newspaper that has been recognized at the state
and national levels.
We are now enrolling for the Fall Semester at Community High School and are excited to meet with you and your student to see how we can make his/her dreams of attaining a Portage Public Schools high school diploma a reality.
