    Fall 2019 Evening Scholars

    September 23 – January 16, 2020
    Nightly:  5:00 – 8:15pm


    Registration process:  Students must be pre-registered for specific courses by their high school counselor.  Pre-registration begins August 26th

    Pre-registration and registration are not a guarantee of enrollment into a class due to our prioritization of students we serve.  We will continue to enroll students through June 14, which may result in lower prioritized students being bumped from a class.  

    Our prioritization process uses the student’s current grade level and is as follows:

    1.   PPS Seniors
    2.   PPS Juniors - credit recovery
    3.   PPS Sophomores - credit recovery
    4.   PPS Freshmen - credit recovery
    5.   PPS students - initial credit (only if there is room in a class)
    6.   out-of-district students - only if there is room

    Please contact our office with any questions regarding our Evening or Summer Scholars program:  (503)916-5720.
