a new way to think about High School. Through this program, students can earn their high school diploma while simultaneously earning an associate’s degree or participating in a state registered pre-apprenticeship/apprenticeship.
This newly-reimagined educational track provides students more opportunity to be more prepared. As students look to either enter the workforce or continue their education, the Fast Forward program can help give practical, real-world experience to further shape the future of a student. Students will be able to pair that practical experience with traditional academic instruction to further prepare them for the next stage.
Across the state, several school systems are participating in the Fast Forward program to give students the opportunity to kick start their career and life after high school.
Fast Forward pathways are developed regionally to address economic forecasts for high-wage, high-demand jobs in each Regional Labor Market Area. Select your region to download more information.
