The Purdue Polytechnic High School Mentorship Program is a critical element to executing our mission and vision by enhancing the school model, culture and student lives. Mentors will help prepare our students develop a natural thirst to learn and excel in preparation for their lifelong journeys.  

Our mentorship program will pair students with a mentor from a local business or organization to help guide them as they navigate the polytechnic curriculum.  Mentors will support students in their academic, personal and professional growth. Students will benefit from an additional positive adult role model relationship that spans school, life and work.

Mentors will provide students unique career, academic, and personal guidance beyond what is provided by teachers, administrators, and guidance staff. Mentors’ level of engagement with students will grow and evolve as students progress through Purdue Polytechnic High School.
