“The Running Start program helped me save a lot of money on tuition, and I was able to develop necessary study habits before leaving high school. The higher intensity of classes may be daunting, but it's worth it. You can still see your friends, play sports, and get the 'high school experience.' Another benefit for me was getting to use lab equipment every quarter that wouldn't usually be available until senior year at a university.” — Jamie Skeie

Jamie's Mom (Terri Skeie)

“As a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) major, my daughter was able to take college level math and science courses that she would not have been able to take at the high school. Attending college helped her develop needed study skills before leaving home and transferring to a university.

Also, our family saved at least $6,000 and two years of time as a result of my daughter's participation in Running Start. This “jump start” made her feel like she was working toward her goal rather than taking courses in high school she would have needed to repeat.” — Terri Skeie
