New Horizons at Heritage is dedicated to helping talented Yakima Valley students like you to realize your full potential as future leaders in our community and around the world.
Do You Qualify?
High school seniors with two letters of support (from a principal, counselor or teacher) and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher may take the full-credit classes with no charge. If you’re a junior, you can also apply, but a third letter of support from an official at your high school is needed.
At our discretion, students with a GPA below 3.0 may still be eligible. Along with your application materials, please submit a written personal statement explaining why your GPA does not reflect your true abilities and potential.
How to Apply
If you meet the program requirements send your high school transcript and required letters of support from your principal, counselor, or teacher to:
Heritage University Office of Admissions
Attn: New Horizons
3240 Fort Road
Toppenish, WA 98948
If you are home-schooled, please send any pertinent documentation of your academic achievement, including SAT or ACT scores if applicable.
Once eligibility for the program is determined, the Director of New Horizons will contact you to set up an advising appointment to help you choose a class of interest at the appropriate course level. Class participation will then be approved by your advisor, the course instructor and the Director of New Horizons will file all necessary paperwork.
For a list of courses or more information, contact the New Horizons office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509.865-0440.
The program will cover the full cost of tuition and fees associated with the course they are taking, but students will be responsible for the cost of books and supplies. Classes must be taken for a letter grade and must be taken during the academic calendar year through Heritage University’s undergraduate program.
