The Student Support Center has become a hub of activity over the past several years.  We are home to our Virtual High School classes, our Student Tech Help Internship and a place for students to come during their study hall to work and/or relax. 

Students in our Virtual High School program select to take elective classes in a variety of subject matters.  These courses are taught through an online platform by teachers outside of King Philip.  Please click here to see the course offering  VHS Catalog
