FastTrak

What if colleges applied to you? Seems counterintuitive, right? It’s not. Here’s why. Schools spend years preparing students for the college applications process. Families agonize over how to put the ‘best’ student forward. In the end, students and colleges expend a great deal of time and energy to find a mutually good fit. SAGE Scholars has found a better way to match highly qualified SAGE Scholars students with institutions that best align with their unique learning and life goals. FastTrak is our new approach to bridge the gap between students, families, and colleges while expediting the admissions process.

What if colleges applied to you? Seems counterintuitive, right?

It's not. Here's why.

Schools spend years preparing students for the college applications process. Families agonize over how to put the 'best' student forward. In the end, students and colleges expend a great deal of time and energy to find a mutually good fit.

SAGE Scholars has found a better way to match highly qualified SAGE Scholars students with institutions that best align with their unique learning and life goals.

FastTrak

Bringing SAGE Scholars students and member colleges & universities together, FastTrak encourages priority communication, recruitment, and admission.

Students are now eligible to build a SAGE Scholars FastTrak profile — easily creating a summary of interests, grades, awards, and additional information. Think of it as a portfolio: created to give colleges preliminary information before the admissions season begins.

With a complete profile, student’s information becomes available to more than 445 SAGE Scholars member institutions across the country — 90% of which are ranked "America's Best" by U.S. News & World Report. It's simple: the more information available, the more attention students attract from SAGE Scholars member colleges and universities.

Build A FastTrak Profile: Six Key Pieces

  1. Current Email Address
  2. Self-reported GPA
  3. Unofficial High School Transcript
  4. Favorite SAGE Scholars Colleges & Universities
  5. Majors of Interest
  6. Sports and/or Activities

How Does This All Work?

When a student completes the FastTrak profile, that information goes directly to SAGE Scholars member colleges and universities.

Schools matching the student's interests, abilities, and goals will respond with a "Preliminary Admissions" letter. With this information, students have an exclusive pathway to discuss: financial aid, career/major interests, campus life, and other concerns.

Get on the FastTrak

At SAGE Scholars, our goal remains the same: connect families and students with colleges to ease the stress of the admissions process. With FastTrak, we've created a new approach to bridge the gap between students, families, and colleges while expediting the admissions process. SAGE Scholars continues to do what we’ve always done best: lead the way, build relationships, and serve our member families.

Keep an eye out! FastTrak will be launching October 1, 2022.

Starting College While in High School
Starting College While in High School
October 19, 2022
One of the most rewarding ways to begin your college career is by starting it in high school. College is a daunting experience, no doubt about it. High school is likewise a stretch of your life that may bring bad memories and experiences. Both school experiences may offer horror stories you will live with for your entire life. However, speaking from experience, you can reduce the number of scary experiences that could occur in your first year by beginning your college career while still attending high school.

Some students reach a specific point in their high school journey when they want to inquire about their college options and look for ways to get a head start on higher education classes. Dual enrollment opportunities allow students to gain some college credits while still in high school. This opportunity provides an excellent way for students to get college credits. It also meets your high school graduation requirements before graduating. Before you sign up for dual enrollment, consider these critical details and what it requires.
