Our High School Program is available to any student seeking a WA State High School Diploma, regardless of age and credits earned to date. The first step for any student is to meet with Polytech staff to review transcript and formulate a plan.
Our overall schedule is designed to allow maximum flexibility for the student. We can accommodate unusual needs and consider both transportation and timing available to the student. In general, students fill 3 slots with classes at The Polytech or a college campus, internship or externship experiences, or another learning experience designed specifically for the student. There are multiple options available:
Polytech High School Classes:
We have knowledgeable and experienced faculty who are caring and provide instruction following standard college-prep high school curriculum. Classes are taught in small groups of up to 8 students along with one-on-one coaching and instruction sessions and supervised independent study time. This format prepares students for all types of learning environments, and helps students to be prepared for a professional career.
Students may spend all of their time at The Polytech campus and earn a diploma based entirely on high school credits, or combine time in several options to earn college credit, which also satisfies high school graduation requirements.
College courses may be taken at The Polytech, or at a one of our college partner's campuses. Both options enable students to earn both college and high school credit from the same course and to select from a wide range of course offerings, both academic and career-oriented training, to match student interests and talents. College credits may transfer to a four-year university and degree programs.
Independent Community-Based High School Credits:
The Polytech awards high school credit on a Pass/Fail basis for meaningful community experiences. Examples include PE credit for playing on intramural teams or participating in martial arts, fine art credit for singing in a community choir, and work experience for paid or volunteer work.
