Fast Track is a joint partnership between Wallace State, local school systems and others which allows high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to complete up to two years of college coursework before high school graduation. All coursework is taken on Wallace State’s campus but students are still able to return to their local high school to participate in extracurricular activities.
