Calhoun Community College to Host Fast Track Academy Again this Summer

February 6, 2017

Calhoun announces the return of Fast Track Academy for high school students graduating this spring who would like to get a head start on their classes this fall. This program has been designed to provide students who plan to attend Calhoun in the fall with resources to prepare them for college coursework.  These include specialized instruction in Math and English, one-on-one advising, college orientation and career counseling.  What’s even more exciting is that students will be able to earn free college credit.
 
Last year, we started with 357 students. Of those, a staggering 307 STUDENTS completed the academy for an 86% completion rate! Last year’s Fast Track Academy saved students an average of 3.08 credit hours and $455.57 per student!  
 
Any high school student graduating this spring with plans to attend Calhoun in the 2017 fall semester and meeting the following criteria is eligible to enroll in the Fast Track Academy:

  • Scoring 20 or below on the Math section of the ACT
  • Scoring 18 or below on the English section of the ACT or
  • Scoring 20 or below on the Reading section of the ACT

Calhoun’s 2017 Fast Track Academy will begin Monday, June 12 and run through Thursday, July 21.   Morning sessions will be held from 8:30 am to noon each day and evening sessions will be 6:00-9:30 p.m. on both the Decatur and Huntsville campuses.  Pre-registration for the Academy is required, and a limited number of spaces are available.  Registration will begin April 3.
