    Seattle Early College Program (SEC) at UW and SU
    Currently accepting 9th grade applications for 2021-2022 
    Application Deadline: March 12th

    Our University of Washington and Seattle University sites each enroll 20 students at the beginning of the academic school year. These 9th graders will spend their 9th and 10th grade years earning high school credits on a college campus (either at UW’s campus or Seattle University’s campus). In their 11th and 12th grade years, students will enroll in the Running Start program through one of three Seattle Colleges where they begin earning both high school and college credits. MCHS Staff will be on Seattle College campuses to support students while they take their Running Start classes. Students who work diligently in the Running Start program may graduate high school with an Associate's Degree. 10th graders can join the cohort if there is space, so please reach out if you are interested in joining SEC in 10th grade.

    To attend Seattle Early College for the upcoming school year, current SPS students can contact us for more information. All applicants must attend an Info Night and fill out our Entrance Form. Additional paperwork may be requested. Please email your entrance form to
