Wichita Heights offers its students the opportunity to take college classes at several local area colleges. See below for specific information pertaining to WSU Tech's Jumpstart program as well as dual credit classes offered at various community colleges.
At WSU Tech, junior and senior students are able to take qualified career and technical college courses for free through the Jumpstart program. These "program block" courses are offered at one of four WSU Tech campuses across Wichita, with the location depending on the program chosen. More information on free courses offered through WSU Tech, as well as locations for all the classes, can be found on the PDF below. Students will take classes either in the morning or in the afternoon, depending on what time the block is offered.
If students take classes at one of the campuses in the morning, they will return to Heights to complete the rest of their scheduled classes in the afternoon (and vise versa). Transportation is provided to and from the campus for free if needed. If enrolled in one of the block courses, students are eligible to rent textbooks at a discounted price.

Mr. Ghitis will hold meetings during Tutorials to discuss important information pertaining to the WSU Tech Block program. These meetings will provide information regarding requirements to participate in the program and deadlines to apply for free tuition.* Pay attention to the announcements page for details on when these meetings will be held for interested sophomores and juniors. All students will need to visit Mr. Ghitis in the CCC to obtain required forms to be completed before being admitted into the program.
*Note: Students are eligible to take courses at WSU Tech for free outside of school hours, but transportation is not provided and students will need to pay the full cost of their books.*
