•  Area Vocational Program (AVP)

    The Area Vocational Program at Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) provides occupational skill development and training for juniors and seniors in high school.  In addition to teaching career-technical skills, AVP strives to prepare students for the world of work by teaching the related academics and workplace basics that are essential for employment.  Instruction is provided in classrooms, laboratories, and in business and industry at the PPCC Centennial campus.  The top 3 reasons to enroll in AVP

    1. Earn high school credit 
    2. Obtain college credit in classes that interest you 
    3. Get a jumpstart on a career pathway 
    Classes follow a typical 5-days-per week schedule and run two hours and forty minutes daily. While some programs offer a second year of AVP curriculum, all programs can be continued at the collegiate level following graduation. The number of courses covered within each program varies and only a grade of a “C” or better earns college credit.  Transportation may be provided but ultimately, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure their daily attendance.  The following programs are currently offered to FFCHS students:
