Classes at WRAHS
All Washburn Rural Alternative High School courses are aligned with Washburn Rural High School courses and satisfy the graduation requirements of Auburn-Washburn. Course grades, along with attendance, are posted to Campus Portal and may be viewed by students and parents at any time.
Students who attend Washburn Rural Alternative High School must meet the graduation requirements of Washburn Rural High School and complete a minimum eight hours of community service at a non-profit organization each year during which they are involved in the Alternative High School program. Students completing all requirements receive a diploma from Washburn Rural High School and have the opportunity to walk in the May commencement ceremony.

Recommendations come from your counselor, administrator, or from academic information that was gathered following the conclusion of the school year. If you are recommended, you will receive a letter in the mail and via Campus Portal, and should follow this process:
- Email or call to verify you want to take part in this program. Be prepared to schedule a 15 minute meeting with the Principal or the Counselor before August 1.
- Attend your scheduled meeting (both the student and parent/guardian must attend). Please be punctual as there are 40 individual meetings to complete.
- Complete the online survey before attending your meeting. Information provided before your meeting will be discussed.
