Sports and Activities FAQs
How do you offer socialization in an online school?
Pikes Peak Online School (PPOS) students are virtual classmates, and so much more. They're athletes, artists, volunteers, friends, and so much more. Even though PPOS is an online school, we recognize the importance of offering field trips, dances (including a prom), and a graduation ceremony among many other in-person activities. These events are all in support of an authentic public school experience that both teaches and socializes students.
In addition, many courses provide opportunities for students to interact with each other through discussion threads and "virtual classrooms" where they collaborate and communicate through two-way voice over IP, instant messaging, and application sharing.
Students have told us that they build great relationships through the community-building opportunities we provide.
Will school dances be held? A graduation ceremony?
Yes, there will be activities such as a prom, social events, academic field trips, and a graduation ceremony.
What about athletics and other extracurricular activities?
Students are encouraged to speak with their resident school district regarding the possibility of participating in extracurricular activities.
