Great to Work With

“EWU has really been great to work with. You really understand the mutual benefits of dual enrollment and offer assistance rather than putting up barriers to implementation.”

Vance Jennings
Naches Valley High School

Continued Improvement

“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

Beneficial Subject Matter

“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

Increased Confidence

“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.”
