What Is PPEP Tec?

PPEP TEC High School (PTHS) is available for students looking for an alternative to a “traditional” education. With small student to teacher ratios, we are able to provide more of a one-on-one learning experience.

PPEP TEC High School (PTHS) provides an alternative educational option for students ages 14-21, grades 9-12.

We offer a comprehensive high school curriculum taught by highly qualified and caring teachers. In addition, depending on student commitment, we offer accelerated learning opportunities that will enable a first-time freshman to graduate in as little as 3 years!


It’s a safe environment, which is one of the reasons I have been coming here for two years. Juan S.
