What is the admissions process?
First, get an application and admission material from NUHS or any North Clackamas high school counselor. Second, complete the application, include a current transcript, and return to NUHS or your high school counselor. Applications will be considered in the order they are received by NUHS.
How soon can my student get admitted?
On average, when a completed application and transcript is received, the school will make contact with the family within two business days to discuss enrollment. Using the information provided by the transcript, students will be placed in an appropriate academic level. Our desire is to begin helping the student as soon as possible; however, students may be placed on a waiting list if the enrollment at their academic level is full.
