EWU in the High School allows sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school to be enrolled in college-level courses and earn college credit, all within the familiarity of their high school classroom.
Moving from a high school curriculum to a four-year university curriculum is a transition that takes some adjustment. Students must be academically prepared and motivated to successfully participate in classes that are faster paced and more intense than their high school courses. A student’s time in the program can be very rewarding.
“By helping students realize that they are capable of managing higher-level coursework, we instill confidence and help inspire them to continue their pursuit of a higher education.” —Joe Pauley, Central Valley High School
“Thank you so much for all that you and your office do for our kids. We love having the option of offering legit university credits right on our campus, it’s helped a ton. We also appreciate the continued efforts for improvement with adding courses, professional development for staff, checkups, etc. This is such a great option for us.” —Kyle Miller, Columbia High School
“Thank you for the opportunity to teach College in the High School Psychology. The experience was VERY beneficial for both students earning EWU credit and students who aren't. The subject matter allowed us to spend time talking about how to time manage, how to learn, and how to self-correct. All of my students are much better prepared to take the next step to college whether they earned college credit or not.” —Jeff Dunn, Deer Park High School
