General Information

The Cornerstone and College in the High School programs allow high school students to take CWU courses from their approved high school instructors without leaving their campus at a reduced rate. Students who are in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades are eligible for the private pay Cornerstone model. Students who are in the 11th and 12th grades may be eligible for the College in the High School state-pay model. Students are only allowed to take 15 credits per grading term through both Cornerstone and College in the High School. The only difference between College in the High School and Cornerstone is who pays.

College in the High School is paid for by the State of Washington. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) provides funding for those schools that have applied and qualified.

Cornerstone is paid by the student/family. Students are able to take Cornerstone courses at the same time as College in the High School courses. Again, the only difference between College in the High School and Cornerstone is who pays.

We also have a PowerPoint that explains the program and it would be beneficial to show it to the students and their parents. Please do not download and save the PowerPoint for future use as the information might change.
