College Information

VIRTUAL COLLEGE VISITS As we are gearing up for a new school year, we wanted to share a resource that lists universities across the United States and whether or not they offer virtual college visits and if they have an informational YouTube channel. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/2/d/1sO7pVos0EvK0BvXoMbnyg00K6r7hXbOQE0HNXF4N4eM/htmlview?usp=sharing&fbclid=IwAR1Vr3WcvpwflVMsaXnzlMq9ibN3oMMAG8x02F0w6o4nsWr2PSlTkenQoqM


College/Military Visits
Juniors are allowed one college visit and seniors are allowed two college visits. College visits should be communicated with the attendance secretary the day before the visit.  If at all possible, students are encouraged to make visits when school is not in session.  It is strongly recommended that a parent attend the visit with their student. Piper High School does not take students on college visits to college campuses. This is the sole responsibility of the student's family.

Colleges and the military do schedule appointments to have lunch visits and available for all students during their lunch. All visits are during lunch (11:40-1:00). If students are interested in meeting with the representatives, they need to stop by their table during lunch.

 College fairs and other events that may be of interest and/or help to parents will be listed in our counseling canvas pages.

Dual Credit College Courses
Students wishing to take classes through KCKCC must first pass the Accuplacer test or have qualifying ACT scores

Students taking KCKCC classes are responsible for purchasing their own books (except for classes taught by high school teachers) and paying tuition and fees.  Students can pay for classes through their Web Advisor account.  

Several classes are possibly offered for college credit at Piper High School each school year.  The courses offered are determined by the course having enough students to create a section of the course per college guidelines. 

 Semester
Public Speaking - 3 hours
College Composition 1 - 3 hours

College Composition 2- 3 hours
College Psychology-3 hours

All Year
College Algebra - 3 hours
Pre-Calculus - 5 hours

 *Students that enroll in classes through KCKCC that are taught at PHS by KCKCC instructors, will only be able to access grades for those classes through the KCKCC Web Advisor. When enrolling for KCKCC classes, students need to use a valid email address. That email address will be used to acces the Web Advisor site.
