Q. The Pioneer Learning Experience

Our students often remark that they enjoy their Pioneer learning experience and look forward to coming to school because they are doing something they are truly interested in and are hands on in their labs.

Q. Home School Activities

Experience the best of both worlds! Pioneer students can participate in their home school’s activities while learning skills for a lifetime. If there are class meetings, assemblies, early dismissals or other home school activities, students do not miss out on being a part of those events. Pioneer students can also participate in sports and clubs at their home school.

Q. A Unique Schedule
A. Pioneer students have a unique learning experience unlike traditional high school settings. Half of the day is spent in academic classes and the rest of the school day involves hands-on learning in program labs.
Q. Graduate with Credentials, Licenses and College Credit

Achieve MORE during high school. Pioneer students earn a certificate and career passport from Pioneer along with a diploma from their home high school. Many students also graduate with industry credentials and licenses earned in their chosen programs. There are also over two dozen academic and technical College Credit Plus (CCP) classes offered at Pioneer.

Q. Career and/or College

Students at Pioneer can  be college bound or go straight to the workforce.  Many of our students earn significant scholarships and have the advantage of understanding what direction they want to take their career.

Q. Real World Experiences

Most of our career technical labs provide our students with real world experiences dealing with the public. From hair cuts in Cosmetology to running The Pioneer Room restaurant in Culinary Arts, from servicing cars in Auto Technologies to repairing ATVs in Power Equipment, Pioneer students have real customers and provide valuable services.

Q. Connect with Others
A. While each student is unique, at Pioneer students can connect with others who share similar interests, goals and talents in a friendly learning environment.
Q. Student Organizations

Pioneer students have the opportunity to get involved in student organizations that are a part of life at Pioneer. Being a member of student council, the yearbook staff, GEMS or National Technical Honors Society offers many options spanning a variety of student interests. Besides these, Pioneer students can also become members of BPA, HOSA,  FFA, FCCLA and SkillsUSA depending on the program they are enrolled in.

Q. Annual Spring Formal
A. Students at Pioneer not only get to attend their home school’s prom, but also Pioneer sponsors our own Annual Spring Formal. Our student council conducts a student vote to choose a theme for the dance and the event is always a great night to remember for our students and their guests.
Q. Lifelong Friends

Our students often find that the new people they meet while at Pioneer become their lifelong friends.
