Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Portland Evening Scholars!

    We are looking forward to a great year as we continue to prepare to support Portland students in their journey towards graduation. 

    We will be offering approximately 35 course sections across 4 nights each week for the duration of our two 14 week semesters and we will hire approximately 55 staff to make this happen. 

    We will provide highly qualified teachers and tutors to assist our students with their academics and we are very excited to be partnering with Portland Public School’s Virtual Scholarsprogram where some courses will be offered online. 

    Our staff is dedicated in the work they do and they show this every night by unconditionally welcoming their students into the classrooms and providing them a safe place to learn.  We are on a compacted calendar with a lot to cover in a shorter amount of time so we do stress the importance of maintaining a safe and respectful learning environment.   

    Our program is an NCAA approved program and our teachers follow Portland Public School’s curriculum calendars for the subjects they teach. 

    If there is anything we can help you with or answer any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 


    Thank you and welcome back to school, Portland!


    Mr. David Holm 

    Program Administrator
