The HEP students have the ability to step outside of their comfort zone and place themselves in a new environment to better understand opportunities higher education can offer them.

At the WSU HEP program we have our students focus on each subject at a time rather than teaching the students all four subjects at once. 

The 5 weeks go as follow:

  • 2 weeks for Math
  • 1 week for Science
  • 1 week for Social Science 
  • 1 week for Language Arts
