Identify Your Strengths and Achieve Your Dreams

One size does not fit all, especially in high school. At Eastlake High School (Eastlake), a tuition-free, fee free school for grades 9-12 in El Paso County, we provide opportunities to those who didn’t find success in traditional schools. Do you have a big dream? Let’s identify your strengths and guide you towards your dreams.

Why Identify Your Strengths?

Identifying your strengths, desires and values helps you design your learning path towards your dream career. The equation looks something like this:

SUM(Strengths - Weaknesses) + SUM(Desires + Values) = Dream Career

At Eastlake, you have endless support to guide you towards your dreams.

What If I Don’t Know My Dream Career?

Don’t worry. Many students don’t know their dream career yet. At Eastlake, we help you find your personal success by utilizing the following:

  • Aptitude & personality tests to determine your skills, strengths and motivators.
  • Customized learning paths catered to your test results.
  • 1:1 support from Eastlake staff to reflect upon your strengths and make a plan.
  • Access to dual enrollment with Pikes Peak State College (PPSC) to earn college credits and your high school diploma at the same time.

Most importantly, if you start out on one track and you don’t love it, we give you the space and support to find another path. Changing your mind is okay with us. 

Why are Goals Important?
