Continuing Education for Young Parents / CEYP
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. Students learn about community organizations and social service agencies that provide personal and family counseling, medical assistance, job counseling and other services. 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.
Little Mustangs Learning Center Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing environment for the development of the children of our student teen parents and to enable these parents to develop, reflect upon, and improve their roles as parents while gaining knowledge of human growth and development, and early childhood education.
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, Merlo Station High School, or here. If you have questions about CEYP or the Little Mustangs Learning Center, call 503-356-3668.
