If you’re an academically motivated high school junior or senior, Running Start may be the perfect option for you! The Running Start program at SVC offers you the opportunity to take college level courses to earn credits for both your high school diploma and college degree—without paying tuition!

Running Start is a collaborative, state-supported program offered by SVC and area public high schools.
