Fast Track for Scholars (8th graders)

Fast Track for scholars is a summer "jump start to high school" program for incoming Minneapolis Public School 9th grade students. It is held at Edison High School and Washburn High School for all students and runs from June 17th, 2019 to July 25th, 2019. It is held on Mondays - Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m with optional programming beyond the FAST TRACK day with YMCA Beacons. It is a FREE program that includes breakfast, lunch, and a Metro Transit Go-To bus card. Upon successful completion of a class they register for, students can earn 0.5 (one semester) elective credit before high school even starts! It is a great way for them to meet new friends that will be going to their high school and meet some of their teachers! It is a fantastic program that can help the transition from middle to high school go smoother.
