Brief overview of program: ORCA is a unique opportunity for high school students, using the framework of the Running Start program and the resources of Everett Community College, tuition is free! ORCA offers students a full-time college experience that satisfies all requirements for an Associate’s degree and most requirements for a high school diploma. Using an innovative, project-based approach in a small "learning community" environment, students enjoy the challenge of designing and implementing their own learning experiences under the guidance of talented college faculty. While marine science provides the focus for interdisciplinary projects, students receive a rich education in all of the core subjects, with outstanding faculty members working with the students for two years.
