Graduating Students Jumping

What is the Willamette Promise?


    We are a dual credit and career and college readiness program specializing in university credits, advising, and career-related activities to support students as they work toward their future.

    Our goal is that all students will understand their options and have the skills and knowledge to make independent and informed decisions to support their future.

    We offer a variety of dual credit courses transcribed with Western Oregon University (WOU) and Oregon Institute of Technology (OT) that help students to focus on post-secondary education and training. We also partner with industry to help students train for the right career for them, whether that be apprenticeships, trade schools, on-site learning, college, or university.

    Our program offers over 30 dual credit classes to high school students. Paired with career and college exploration and experiences, the Willamette Promise wants to make sure that students see the connection to their future in each classroom and every experience.

    The Willamette Promise is housed at the Willamette Education Service District and proudly serves over 55 school districts from across Oregon.
