    Thank you for visiting our website; that means you have taken the next step in earning your credential. Federal Way Open Door’s mission is for our scholars to “See….Do and Decide” their future pathway. I have had six years of administrative experience and have learned this year that the principal role at Open Doors is very different from my previous schools. I’ve learned that everyone has their own path and deserves to choose how they approach learning. Our student scholars have commented on how they appreciate our environment and how it feels more college-like. Additionally, student scholars like that they can set their own hours to accommodate work, family and personal responsibilities as long as they are making progress.

    At Open Doors, we have the opportunity to work with individual students through our enrollment, intake and course completion. Many of our student scholars come to us hoping to retrieve credits they have failed but leave us not only high school graduates, but enrolled in college, training programs or beginning living-wage careers.
    100% of our scholars will be engaged in post-secondary activities as part of their graduation requirements.  As your principal, I will go out of my way to connect you with resources, support your academic and personal successes and help you achieve your goals. I look forward to you joining the Open Doors Team!
