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.

Welcome to the Willamette PromiseThe Willamette Promise is a program coordinated through the Willamette Education Service District to provide local schools support in reaching our state’s education goals. This program will support those goals by increasing student’s chances for degree attainment by completing college courses while still in high school. It will also greatly expand the opportunities for students to complete Career and Technical Education courses leading to industry certification and careers. Another major advantage to the Willamette Promise is that these opportunities for students will come at a significant cost savings for families.
