Check out new ocean research lab
EvCC facility is geared for students who want to earn college credit while completing their high school education.
Visitors can see student work, meet faculty members, learn about the program and see the new facility, including the oceanography research lab and 120-gallon seawater tank.
ORCA is an early college academy for high school students, who can earn up to two years of college credit for free while completing their high school educations. Most students graduate with an associate's degree in addition to a high school diploma.
The program is the only early college academy of its kind in the country. ORCA uses the local marine environment as the unifying theme for all academic disciplines.
ORCA is sponsored by Everett Community College and was initially funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
