The Innovation Track provides qualified high school and homeschooled students a guided pathway to earning college credits through personalized advising. Innovation Track students have the unique opportunity to enroll in on campus or online college classes while in high school. This allows students to gain confidence and explore interests while taking advantage of a highly discounted tuition rate. Students can earn enough credits to complete a four-year college degree in three years. To maximize benefits, students are encouraged to start the Innovation Track as early as possible. Talk to your high school counselor or contact us to plan out your schedule.
Innovation Track students pay ~70% less in tuition costs than if taken after high school. Application fees are waived and you might qualify for valuable scholarship opportunities, such as our dual credit freshman scholarship which awards $500 per semester and is renewalble for up to six semesters.
Participation in the Innovation Track will potentially lessen your time to a college degree. Take classes once and have them count twice as many high schools allow students to use classes taken through Innovation Track towards their high school requirements.
