Educational Success is Possible While Chasing Your Dreams!
Students who are interested in pursuing goals and dreams that take them outside of the traditional classroom would greatly benefit from our school programs. In addition, students who are interested in attaining academic success who are struggling with fitting into the traditional mold have the opportunity to excel with On Track School, since our goal is to accommodate our students’ needs by thinking outside of the box. In fact, we like to think of our program as a panoramic window looking out into the blue sky and depending on our student's goals, we think it is best that they determine the canvas, be it, paper, music, virtual reality, dirt, turf, greens, track, waves, snow, gym, ice, – or the stage and screen!
With On Track School, students can work comfortably at their own pace which often allows for acceleration and an early graduation. Our Administrator and Director will review the options during the orientation process and then periodically review to be sure we are all On Track for student success.

What Our Students Say:
"On Track School has been the optimal solution for me to balance school and motocross. Prior to On Track School, it was difficult for me to be able to go to the track twice or even once on the weekends. Many occasions I was not able to go at all because of the strict daily homework deadlines. Since I have entered On Track School I have been able to go to the track and go to the gym and still be able to come home and do school work. On Track School also permits me to work at my own pace but challenged me to be organized, unlike regular school. With due dates for homework being on a weekly basis this requires me to devise my own way to make sure I complete all of my assignments on time and to not fall behind. In short, On Track School has allowed me to achieve my personal goals while maintaining a highly successful yet challenging educational experience."
"My name is Erica Ezell. I am a 9th grader with On Track School. I have been home schooled since 2nd grade and have been a student with On Track since I was in the 4th grade when my mom became a learning coach for On Track School. My parents began home schooling for various reasons but we have continued so that my sister’s and I have the freedom to travel and sing. It is difficult for a young person who wants to reach for out-of-the-box experiences to get the time off from public school. I am very thankful for On Track and for the freedom it allows me to follow my dreams.
I, along with my family, sing in a bluegrass/country band. I play bass, banjo, and guitar as well as sing needed lead and harmony parts. I enjoy very much being on stage and entertaining. We chose bluegrass music due to its American roots and the overall wholesomeness of the music. I also enjoy cooking, cake decorating, twirling baton, and photography. I do plan to keep singing and playing, however, oddly enough I do not plan to study music in college but wish to gain a degree in journalism where I can utilize my photography skills. On Track has granted me the privilege to learn and seek out my dreams and expectations. Who could ask for more in a school?"
