Did you hear…the federal government distributed millions of dollars to schools to address COVID-related expenses. These are one-time funds to help schools through the challenges of the pandemic.

Highline also offers Schools of Choice, a variety of school and program options, each with a specialized focus to meet student interest and need. The application window for secondary schools of choice is open now and runs through January 31. See information night details.
