Waipahu High School has partnered with Leeward Community College and the University of Hawaii to offer an Early College Olympian Pathway designed to promote STEM-oriented career pathways. The goal is to prepare students to enroll in a pre-med or university engineering program as high school juniors. Learn how EdReady has been used to prepare students not quite ready for college algebra when entering as high school freshmen.
