Graduation Pathways

Every student in the state of Washington must meet a Graduation Pathway in order to graduate.  Previously this requirement was met by passing the Smarter Balance exam.  However, now there are a number of ways to meet it.  Talk to your counselor about which pathway you want to pursue.

Below are some of the most common ways students meet it while at Mountlake Terrace High School.


The Washington Guaranteed Admissions Program (WAGAP) allows students of Mountlake Terrace High School guaranteed admissions to six colleges (WSU, UW Tacoma, WWU, CWU, EWU, The Evergreen State College) if:

  1. You earn and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher
  2. You have met your College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs)
  3. Opt-In through Skyward Family Access
