Running Start

Running Start allows juniors and seniors to enroll in courses at community or technical colleges either full time or on a part time basis. Eligibility is based on a placement test given by the colleges. Both college credit and high school credit are earned for courses taken at the college. Although tuition is paid by the District, the student is responsible for books, fees, and transportation.
