Welcome to the Center for High School Programs!

Thank you for your interest in Bellevue College! We offer programs for students interested in earning college credit while in high school, or in returning and completing high school. You can choose from many options and we can help you develop a plan based on your educational, career and personal goals. We serve students age 16 and up in a supportive and safe place. You are Welcome Here!

Summer Enrollment for Underage High School Students

Except for limited Running Start Summer Options, most of our high school programs do not run during the summer. High school students under the age of 18 must take additional steps to enroll for classes during the summer. Go to our Underage Admission website for details.
