Qualifying students enrolling in FAST TRACK can skip one or two years of high school and start their college/university studies right away.

How will I know what classes to take?
The courses a student will enroll in through FAST TRACK are college courses, not high school courses (some English and Math classes may be an exception, depending on the student's assessment and placement). Students complete the normal Associate degree requirements.
