Serving School Districts in North King and South Snohomish Counties
High school students have the opportunity to get a jump start on their career by preparing for a college technical degree program at their local high school. They can earn BOTH high school AND community/technical college credit (this is called DUAL CREDIT) for completing select high school courses with a grade of “B” (3.0) or better.
Here are some of the programs that are available at local colleges that you can start preparing for NOW!
Other programs are continually being added. Contact your high school career specialist to find out what classes in your school are eligible. Not all programs are offered at each college. Please contact the Tech Prep office to find out more information.
Tech Prep prepares students for high-skill, high-wage careers.
Tech Prep links high school and college education courses to professional technical careers.
80% of 21st century jobs will demand more knowledge and higher levels of skill requiring technical training after high school, but not necessarily a 4-year degree.
Tech Prep allows students to explore a career and earn college credits while in high school.
Tech Prep credit can help students qualify for scholarships and gain work experience.
