Students attending private schools must be evaluated as juniors and seniors by a public high school official and enroll at that school. It is not mandatory that students are attending classes at the public high school. It is possible to have dual enrollment at both a private and public high school for access to the Running Start Program.
Home-schooled students must file an Intent to Home School and be determined to be at junior or senior status by their local school district. For further information, please contact the appropriate school district.
