Course & Registration
The Career and College Readiness program offers a wide variety of courses and programs for all students. Each Career and College Readiness course meets Career and Technical Education credit requirements. In addition, some courses may offer equivalency credit to meet other graduation requirements (English, Science, 3rd year math, World Language), meet College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADR), and meet WA State and Northshore School District graduation requirements.
Many courses offer college credit through Pacific NW Dual Credit and College In The High School programs which meet graduation requirements. For a full listing of these college level courses, go to the PNW Dual Credit website to learn more.
Students have the opportunity to access a variety of Career and College Readiness courses at varying levels. Below is a description of the types of programs offered:
Northshore School District stand alone: These course offerings vary at each school location and are available for only those students at that school. Many of these courses are taught at most if not all schools.
Northshore School District satellite: These course offerings are available only at the location indicated within the Northshore School District and available to NSD students. Satellite programs are typically available to Juniors and Seniors only and students are encouraged to drive themselves as transportation is limited. Acceptance into a satellite program is based on an application process.
Applications can be obtained from Career Counselors at each high school during registration or downloaded from the Quick Links menu bar. Applications need to be submitted at the same time as registration materials or when stated by each individual school. Students are accepted based on their application, teacher recommendations, and attendance profile.
Northshore School District WANIC: These course offerings are taught throughout the WANIC consortium consisting of Northshore, Lake Washington, Bellevue, Mercer Island, Issaquah, Riverview, and Snoqualmie Valley school districts and are available to all WANIC consortium students. WANIC course offerings are for Juniors and Seniors only and do require personal transportation.
Acceptance into a WANIC program is based on application and a personal visit to the program. Visitation forms can be obtained from the Career Counselor at your school. Once the program visit is made, the application can be completed online. Go to WANIC for more information on course offerings.
