   Welcome to Community High!

Community High Logo

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.

Do you have a student who is not finding success in a traditional high school environment? Are they skipping class, failing classes, getting behind in credit, or simply feeling like they don't "fit in"? Community High School can help. Our staff, who are highly trained in academic and behavior intervention and support, create a compassionate learning environment with daily one-on-one instruction that allows students to experience success and develop important social and academic skills.

We are now enrolling for term four, which begins on Monday, April 14. Call 269-323-6761 to find out how to get your student back on track to graduate with a Portage Public Schools high school diploma. Student service coordinators are waiting to hear from you; don't delay, call today!


Community High has two attendance policies that we appreciate parental assistance with:

1. Absent students and their parents must call the Attendance Line before second hour to notify the office staff that they will not be in school that day. The number for the attendance line is 269-323-6794.
2. At lunch time, campus is ONLY open for graduating seniors who are passing all 4 classes. All other students may only leave campus in the company of a parent. Parents may not call and give their students permission to leave campus during lunch.
