A Portal education has many advantages including: 

💪  Strong Community

🎤  Student Voice and Choice

Pass the mic! Students mold and shape what Portal is and what Portal will become. They not only want to have an impact on you, but they want you to have an impact on us. From weighing in on course offerings, elective design and extracurricular options, their students will be innovators whose ideas and voices help define the Portal Schools experience.

🎓    High School and College, at the Same Time

Say what?! Students will earn a high school diploma and college degree simultaneously, as well as selecting electives and experiences that align most with their post-graduation plans. 

🤔   Career Immersed Learning

At Portal, they believe students should not just learn about the real world, but experience it first hand. That is why they provide relevant, meaningful internship opportunities and on-site mentorship so that students gain critical work experience, guiding them toward a career path that inspires and excites.

🌈   Diverse by Design

Today’s world is growing more diverse and they want their students to be prepared to lead in a global society. They are committed to creating an inclusive culture at Portal campuses with each class being socioeconomically, racially, and ethnically diverse to allow for a wide range of viewpoints and cultural experiences to broaden student learning. They believe that diverse backgrounds and opinions strengthen learning, challenge opinions and expand perspectives. They are excited to hear yours!
