Historical BackgroundReturn to Top

The Edison "new school property" on Seattle’s Capitol Hill was originally Broadway High School, which operated as a traditional high school until the end of World War II. In 1946, it was renamed Edison Technical School and converted to a vocational and adult education institution for the benefit of veterans who wanted to finish high school but no longer fit in at regular schools. Edison started offering college-level courses twenty-one years later, and was reconstituted as Seattle Community College in September 1966.
