College & Career Readiness 

At Pea Ridge, we strive to create a culture of College and Career Readiness. Our goal is for all students to be placed in a program of study by the end of 9th grade. By graduation, our goal is for each student to either enter the workforce or continue into higher education. We are dedicated to ensuring our students leave Pea Ridge with the hard and soft skills that will make them successful at the next level. We aim to achieve this by providing programs of study focused on post-graduation preparedness, advising, and hands-on opportunities.
