For Teachers & Schools

teacher and student

UW in the High School helps high school students get a jump start on their college career. Through UWHS, high school sophomores, juniors and seniors can take UW courses at their high school and earn high school and college credit at the same time. Courses are taught by the school’s own teachers, who are approved and trained by the UW department sponsoring the course.

Partnering with UWHS can:

  • Improve the college readiness of your students
  • Allow students to earn UW credit at reduced rates, without leaving the high school campus
  • Provide professional development for teachers, who’ll have opportunities to collaborate with UW faculty and other teachers in the program
  • Enhance the academic reputation of your school

In the 2016-2017 school year, more than 100 schools throughout Washington state participated in UWHS as partner schools. More than 200 teachers taught UW courses through UWHS, and nearly 4,500 students enrolled for UW credit in these courses.
