A Challenge Before
College

Jeremy's Story

uw in the high school brings university of washington courses to high school students — all on their own campuses. in uwhs, students like uwhs grad and current uw student jeremy steckler challenge themselves scholastically and can accumulate college credit.

As a senior at Henry M. Jackson High School in Mill Creek, Jeremy Steckler knew he wanted a bigger academic challenge before he began college. 

Jeremy found the extra academic rigor he was looking for — and college credit — through UW in the High School. 

"The responsibility is definitely different," Jeremy said. "You're treated as a college student; you're treated as someone who's there because you want to be there." 

UW in the High School helped set Jeremy up for success at the UW, where he's on track to graduate with bachelor's degrees in business administration and drama with a minor in music — all ahead of schedule, thanks to UWHS. 

"I would definitely suggest UW in the High School," Jeremy said. "It's been wonderful for me and transformed how I view school."
