4 Ways We Make it Easier

At Eastlake, we aim to make high school a little easier for you. We can’t take away the challenges you’ll face in life, but we can offer support for your dreams and equip you with the skills to overcome obstacles. If you find that your current high school isn’t able to do this, now is a great time to switch to our student-centered, tuition-free high school. Here are 4 ways that we make earning a diploma and finding success easier at Eastlake:

1. Flexibility

As an Eastlake student, you can tackle classwork wherever you are, whenever you can. Every student creates a personalized learning plan designed to meet individual needs and goals. We offer in-person and hybrid options that work with busy schedules. We also enroll year-round and even offer summer learning options if you are looking to speed up your graduation date. And when you finish your last credits, you are ready to graduate–no need to wait until June! We make education work for you.

2. Options for Your Future

The path to your future is personal, which is why we offer multiple pathways to graduation depending on your interests and goals. Our get-to-know-you process includes a career aptitude test that helps identify your strengths. From there, you can choose your own adventure!

Whether you are interested in vocational training, joining the military or workforce after graduation or preparing for college entrance, we have something for everyone. We also partner with local programs that can help you become a Certified Nursing Assistant or train for a variety of fields such as veterinary technician or diesel mechanics. If you can dream it up, we can help you make it happen.Teachers and students at Eastlake High School pose for a photo after receiving a whipped cream pie in the face.

3. Close-Knit Community

You know the saying “many hands make light work?” Well, that’s what our amazing community of students and staff does for each other. Our small school works together for the same goal: to help you succeed. And when you have great people around you, the work is easier. From mental health to resources to interview practice and transportation, we offer wrap-around services and caring teachers that support the whole you.

Our small size is one of our greatest assets. We take the time to get to know each other and we truly enjoy our community. We never miss a chance to play, share a meal or find fun in the everyday. From our clubs to sports, our 3 week long elective session and our spirited community, Eastlake helps you build relationships that will last a lifetime.

4. 100% Fee Free

We believe that money should never be a barrier to your success. As a free charter public school, we are not only tuition-free, but we also go above and beyond to provide the resources you need. We cover the costs of everything from tuition to transportation and books. We mean it when your education is 100% fee free.

Our mission is to provide learners like you, who may not be on track to graduate, with the opportunity to complete high school AND achieve success. Let us help you make it happen. Get started today!
