EWU in the High School

What is EWU in the High School?

EWU in the High School is a program that allows eligible 10-12th graders to take EWU courses at their own high schools from EWU-approved teachers. Students earn high school and college credit at the same time!

EWU in the HS course curriculum is the same as the curriculum in an on-campus class at EWU. Each participating EWU academic department provides support to the high school teachers including mentorship with a faculty coordinator, curriculum alignment, and more to ensure that courses match and students have a smooth transition from high school to college. We adhere to the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (NACEP) standards.

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.”
