Continuing Education for Young Parents

The CEYP Program is a program of Merlo Station High School, and provides a supportive environment in which students can continue their education and prepare for the responsibilities of pregnancy and parenthood. These students receive early childhood development and nurturing parenting education, as well as individualized instruction from our CEYP teacher. A daycare center, Little Mustangs Learning Center, is available on-site. While CEYP students attend classes at Merlo Station High School, staff and volunteers provide child care for the infants and toddlers.

In addition, CEYP students may benefit from:

  • Free on-site School-Based Health Center which can provide well-baby checks, immunizations, general health concerns, contraception counseling and services, etc.
  • College, career and job counseling.
  • Access to community resources and donations.
  • Personal and family counseling.

How to Apply

Before applying, a student must be currently enrolled in their home high school (determined by the location of their residence in the Beaverton School District).

Applicants must contact their home high school counselor to discuss their academic needs and review their educational options. The home high school counselor supervises the completion of all information on the application form, including attaching essays, a copy of transcripts, testing scores, discipline information, and attendance records. The application must have all the necessary signatures, which includes student, parent, counselor, and administrator. If a student has an individualized Education Plan (IEP), or is being evaluated for an IEP, an additional process is required to ensure a thorough consideration of the student's educational needs.

Applications are available at the home high school or Merlo Station High School. If you have questions about CEYP or the Little Mustangs Learning Center, call 503-356-3668.

Enrollment Dates

Applications will be accepted year round. Student and family interviews are scheduled to take place the week prior to each new 6 week session.
