“Career Start” is a new partnership between the Federal Way School District and Highline Community College. Simply put, it’s a professional technical form of Running Start. It is designed to allow Federal Way students to graduate from high school at or near the same time that they receive an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from Highline Community College. College tuition for eligible classes is covered through Running Start. However students are responsible for books and applicable fees.
Career Start is available fall, winter, and spring quarters. Students would be enrolled solely in college level classes. The intent of this program is that students will have completed an internship and will have acquired entry level skills to immediately enter the work force, if they choose to do so.
