Poudre Community Academy operates on an 8 period schedule. Two of these periods are for weekly Advisory and Service Learning classes which meet every Wednesday. Each academic class period meets 56 minutes a day with additional time built in to various class periods for Universal Breakfast, Daily Independent Reading Time, and End of the day Circle-up. Courses are assigned on the traditional year long calendar but credits are issued every quarter.

Eligible high school students may take college, career or technical courses to earn both high school and college credit at the same time.
