PAHS has invited the non-profit organization, notMYkid, to speak to parents about substance abuse. If you would like to learn more about how to protect your kids from abusing drugs and alcohol, please join us for this free workshop. We will be learning about common drugs in our community and about recent drug trends. You will also gain resources on how to create a family prevention plan and get tips on how to talk to your family about substance use. Note that this workshop is for parents only, so children should not be an attendance.
Peoria Accelerated High School students have had a busy Block 1. September was packed full of field trips, campus activities and lots of learning. As Block 1 is nearing the end, students will continue to work hard for the next two weeks, earning some well-deserved rest and relaxation during Fall Break. Thank you for all your support of your students and of Peoria Accelerated as we strive to Safe, Challenged, and Ready!
All students will have their pictures taken during 2nd or 3rd period on Thursday, September 14th. Students will be required to take a picture, regardless of whether or not they are purchasing pictures. Students need to bring their IDs to the photographer and must be in dress code. Students should make every effort to attend as the next opportunity for pictures will be in the spring of 2018.
For your convenience we have an online ordering process which allows you to place your picture day order online prior to picture day.

Peoria Accelerated High School is excited to be partnering with Huntington University to provide dual enrollment courses for our students. Currently, twenty Peoria Accelerated students are taking “Production 1,” which introduces them to technology rich experiences using incredible tools to which few people would have access outside of Huntington, yet our students can use these tools on the weekend and via check-out since they are enrolled in HU. Students are transported by PAHS to and from the Huntington campus daily and have thoroughly enjoyed the class, their instructor, and the college experience. Huntington has allowed PAHS to utilize additional classroom space on their campus for the same period, which has allowed PAHS to maintain smaller class sizes and quality instruction on their campus. Peoria Accelerated is excited to continue building a strong partnership with Huntington University as we further the dual enrollment program in the 2017-18 school year. The partnership is helping PAHS to fulfill their vision by "providing high quality academics taught ina 21st century classroom.
Students interested in taking Huntington University courses must be 11th and 12th graders with solid attendance, good grades ("C"s or higher) and have no discipline issues. If Digital Media Arts is a subject that interests you, please email Mrs. Milmine at firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll for 2017-2018.
