Alternative Fast Track


Connected to your FUTURE!

We provide every student a high speed internet connection to use for the entire household. Once you are set up at school or at home we figure out exactly what you need to graduate as fast as possible. Students are required to pass different state tests depending on the year they first enrolled in High School.

In Ohio this may include either the

Ohio Graduation Test or OGT

End of Course Exams or EOC’s

Industry Credential Points

The Team at North Shore High School will help you review all records to make sure schools have not missed passing tests, or will not release records for graduation.

Upload your documents or stop in and we will help. No transcripts, no problem we will send a request for records to the last school you attended.

Career Pathways

Our Career Pathways allow students to pursue an industry-recognized credential which allows students to experience education while working. Industry Recognized Credential Pathways in Ohio also allow students to pursue an alternative pathway to graduation.

With Industry Recognized Credentials Students learn more deeply by practicing and applying their knowledge through work and employment experiences – learning through work. They learn about workplace expectations in terms of professional skills needed for employment, as well as learning about career pathways and what the labor market for particular occupations looks like – learning about work. They also learn job-specific skills they will need to perform day-to-day tasks – learning for work.

Earning an industry-recognized credential and a WorkKeys score of 13 (14 for students in the class of 2020 and beyond) is one of multiple options to earn a high school diploma. When students earn industry-recognized credentials, schools and districts get credit on Ohio Report Cards for their success in preparing students for careers.

College Pathways

As part of the North Shore College Pathway students may use to meet the test requirement for graduation is a college and career readiness test. The two tests that meet this pathway are the ACT and SAT. Colleges and universities use the ACT and SAT to determine student readiness for the rigors of higher education. These institutions generally expect that students who earn "remediation-free" scores will be able to succeed in their college courses.
