The Outer Coast Year consists of two four-month semesters that combine rigorous, college-level academics, meaningful service to the community, and student-led self-governance. Both inside and outside the classroom, Year students will learn how to identify, analyze, and respond to the challenges — both big and small — that face the world today.

The Fall Semester runs from August 31 to December 19, 2020.

The Spring Semester runs from January 19 to May 8, 2021.

All high school graduates are welcome to apply. Outer Coast will meet all demonstrated financial need.
