Many international students begin their studies in the Intensive English Program before progressing to academic programs. If you are an international student and have not completed high school in your home country, you may be eligible for the international high school completion program. This allows you to take courses that will help earn high school and college credits at the same time.

LWTech’s High School Program's comprehensive approach to student selection is the product of national best practices, bounded by state regulation, and supported by intensive training and a dedicated, professional, highly qualified team. One point to emphasize is that meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee acceptance. More information about High School Programs options are listed here.
Lake Washington Technical Academy
Lake Washington Technical Academy offers eligible high school students ages 16-21 an opportunity to earn a high school diploma while concurrently working toward a college degree or certificate. Enrollment is limited and there is an application process. If interested, you must:
• Be at least 16 years of age and not yet 21 before the 1st of September
• Not have earned a high school diploma but may have earned a GED
• Have completed grade 10
• Attend a required orientation and meet all eligibility requirements
• Complete a selective admissions process, that includes essays and an interview
After processes are completed advisors will make an admissions recommendation. Admission recommendation will be to the Academy, as a direct entry student, or the “Open Doors” program.
Direct Entry
Students who have a high school grade point average of at least 2.40 and are on track to graduate may be selected to directly enter the academy. Students may start any quarter.
Open Doors
Students who have less than a 2.40 grade point average, and are behind in credits, may be served through the Open Doors program. Students receive additional academic support during a foundation period of two quarters. Open Doors students may begin Fall or Winter quarters.
Running Start
The Running Start program is a partnership between LWTech and local public high schools. Students classified as high school juniors and seniors may apply. Applications are available in the High School Programs Office.
