New Home for Bright Future at Dollars for Scholars at The Polytech!

After twenty years of success helping high school students in Seattle and surrounding school districts to access community-college-based, industry-certificate programs, the Bright Future program closed because of the closure of Seattle Vocational Institute.

In March of 2018, Reza Khastou, founder and director of the Bright Future program, applied and received approval from Washington's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to open and operate The Polytech, a private high school for students in grades 11 and 12.

The Polytech is an evolution of the Bright Future program. The school offers a combination of small group and one-on-one instruction, college courses taken in partnership with local community colleges, internship experiences, and comprehensive management services. Polytech graduates can earn a high school diploma, college credits, an industry certificate, and gain work experience simultaneously, allowing for a seamless transition to adulthood with a successful career, and which could include additional college education.

Students can enroll in The Polytech and qualify for financial and career-advising support as well as support in coursework.
