In Oregon we tell our children,
"Follow your dreams."
 
Willamette Promise helps dreams 
take flight.

 
In 2015-16, 1819 students earned 10,746 credits with the Willamette Promise! 
 

Whatever future a student can envision, the Willamette Promise can inspire them to take a journey toward those dreams.  Willamette Promise gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credits (up to a whole year of college before high school graduation) and complete career and technical courses (including certifications) before high school graduation.  

Willamette Promise works hard to assist partner schools in establishing a college and career going culture.  In its second year, Willamette Promise grew and achieved success in numerous ways. In comparing year one (2014-15) to year two (2015-16) the following gains were realized: 

  • The number of students earning college credit increased by 202%, from 608 to 1819.
  • College credits earned nearly tripled, from 3609 to 10,746.

Participation by under-represented student populations increased dramatically.

  • Students qualifying for free/reduced lunch earning WP college credits increased by 449%.
  • Students of under-represented ethnicity earning WP credits increased by 226%.

Willamette Promise is making great strides in improving the equitable access to college credit opportunities for all students across the region.  

 
The Willamette Promise is proud to offer the following courses for the 2016-17 School Year:
