Alternative Education Program
509.527.4324 (Walla Walla)
The Alternative Education Program provides students an educational opportunity outside the traditional high school system. Selected students between 16 and 20 years of age, who have not earned a high school diploma, but have a sufficient amount of time to complete high school requirements, may be eligible to participate. The program, which is a joint venture with the Walla Walla School District, covers the cost of tuition and books for program participants.
Washington residents who are currently enrolled in a Walla Walla area high school should contact a Walla Walla High School administrator for a transfer referral and a program application. The AEP office will then schedule an interview for the student with the High School Programs Director and administrators from the Walla Walla School District to determine placement for the student. Students living outside the Walla Walla School District need to request an Inter-District Release form from their superintendent.
Washington residents, whose graduation year has already past, or students who are not currently enrolled in a high school, may contact the AEP office directly.
