College in the High School

What is the College in the High School Program?

Everett Community College's College in the High School (CHS) program is a cooperative program between local school districts and EvCC. The program allows high school students the opportunity to earn EvCC college credit while simultaneously earning their high school credit for approved advanced high school courses. Courses are taught by qualifying high school teachers who work closely with EvCC faculty mentors to insure that the work that the students perform in the high school course is equivalent to a similar course taught on campus. 

Registration deadline has been extended to midnight, Sunday, April 10.

Enrollment is a 4-step process:
