Running Start

JHS Statement

The Running Start program allows 11th and 12th grade high school students to take college-level courses at community and technical colleges. 

JHS believe that the Running Start program is for students that are academically focused, independent, organized, and mature.

It is expected by the colleges associated with Running Start, that students be able to maintain a 2.0 or higher each college quarter or result in ineligibility for the program.

Students may need to change some of expectations about privileges and responsibilities at school. College is an adult environment where students are expected to engage in the community in a positive, mature and independent manner.

**JHS also strongly advises against starting the program in any other quarter than Fall.**

Steps for Sign Ups & Needed Forms
