Apply to the program
Students who will be in high school during the 2016-17 school year may apply online from Jan. 12, 2016, at 4 p.m. PST to Monday, Feb. 8., at 4 p.m. PST. The program is free for accepted students, but an application, interview, transcripts and standardized test scores are required for consideration.
Admission is based on qualifications, which include completion of Algebra I with an A or B grade by the end of eighth grade. The order in which the application is received will not affect consideration. Applications will not be reviewed until after the deadline.
Students who live within district boundaries will be given priority over students from other districts. Transportation is provided for in-district students to and from their home school to Columbia River High School.
Acceptance letters will be mailed on Friday, March 11. Students who are not accepted to a program may be placed on a waiting list.
The school will hold an open house for all interested students and their parents on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Columbia River High School, 800 NW 99th St.
