School Without Walls Faculty

If you are interested in taking courses through the Exposure Program, you first require the approval of the SWW principal. Availability is subject to allotted course limits for the current academic year, beginning in the fall semester and ending each year in the summer semester.

Apply for Approval

Obtain the appropriate registration form from the School Without Walls Guidance Counselor and submit to the School Without Walls principal. Once all forms are approved for the semester, they will be submitted to GW.

Register & Pay Your Bill


GW will register you in the chosen course if you have not registered already. Once your registration is complete you will receive a confirmation email.

Outstanding Fees

The Exposure Program covers tuition only. You are responsible for paying associated course fees and materials costs.
