High School Your Way

At Eastlake High School, you’re in charge. 

Unlike traditional high schools, where you may have little control over your classes and schedule, we put you at the center of your learning – how you do it, when you do it, and with goals that work for you. Our tuition-free charter school works with you to create a perfect-fit high school experience. 

Personalized Learning & Options

When you enroll at Eastlake, our staff will get to know you from day one to create a personalized learning plan that considers all of you. We’ll help you uncover your interests and goals and we’ll find ways to support your needs and strengths. 

Part of your plan will include helping you decide what you want to do with your diploma. We offer a variety of options to support you in your goals. 

  • Our College Prep track offers dual enrollment with Pikes Peak State College (PPSC) so you can earn college credits and your diploma at the same time. 
  • Interested in joining the military? We can put you in touch with recruiters and help you with the necessary credits and classes so you can obtain your diploma. 
  • We partner with a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program that allows you to graduate from high school while simultaneously obtaining your CNA license. And we pay all the fees!
  • Our Career Start program in partnership with PPSC prepares you for a variety of fields, from veterinary technician to diesel mechanics and so much more. No matter the field you are interested in, we’ll help you find a program and provide the support you need to complete necessary certifications while also obtaining your diploma.  

Flexible Scheduling

We know that high school probably isn’t the only thing on your plate right now. Whether you have a full time job, are a new parent or need a school schedule that is less traditional, we offer flexible scheduling that can help you make room for school in your day. At Eastlake, 14-17 year old students attend school in the morning, while our 18-21 year old students attend in the afternoon. And our after-hours tutor is just a call away if you need support on homework in the evenings.

Online & In-Person

At Eastlake, you can take a mix of online and in-person classes through our hybrid options or opt for full in-person classes. However you learn best, we’ll find a way to meet you there. We have an extensive online curriculum that can enable you to find just the class you are looking for or maybe take a new elective that sparks your interest. 

At Eastlake, you don’t need to keep pace with the rest of the class–you work toward your goals, at your own speed. Whether you want to speed up your graduation date, or slow it down to focus on other things, you are in charge of your timeline.

Our tuition-free charter high school puts you in charge of your own learning and your own success. Discover how Eastlake can help you make it happen–enroll today. We’re different, on purpose.
