Senior Service Hours
The purpose of senior service hours is to provide the student and community a shared experience, greater awareness of community harmony, and humanitarian service.  Seniors need to complete 6 hours of community service and/or job shadowing experience.  The service hours may be served any time except during a school day.  Volunteer work should be completed by May 12.  The forms will be available in the main office, Google Classroom site, or school counseling office.  Forms must be returned to the school counselor. Students attending the UVCC, ACES, or taking classes on a college campus through CCP do not have to complete senior service hours.

Flex Credit Option

Per Ohio Revised Code and Piqua School Board policy, Piqua High School allows students the opportunity to experience learning and the acquisition of skills through instruction or study outside of the traditional classroom.  Credit flexibility options are designed for those students who demonstrate the ability, interest and maturity to accept personal responsibility for their learning in a selected curricular area and are willing to pursue it beyond the typical classroom setting.  Any student interested in participating in the Credit Flexibility option should see their counselor.
