The quality of an education shouldn’t be based on a zip code.
Powered by Purdue University, Purdue Polytechnic High School (PPHS) was created to offer new pathways to Purdue, specifically for K-12 Hoosier students who are underserved by traditional high schools and underrepresented in higher education. PPHS immerses students and their families in an innovative, hands-on learning community.
