Enrolling With On Track School
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.
