Quick Start

What is Quick Start?

Quick Start provides opportunities for high school juniors and seniors in select school districts to take Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) or STEM-related classes free of charge to the students. This provides an opportunity for students to gain college credits that can count toward a Sinclair degree/certificate or transfer to another college or university. This experience can help students adjust to the academic demands of taking college courses, experience college life and engage in cohort learning communities that support their career aspirations and academic goals.


Teachers at select school districts request for Sinclair Community College to provide course sections that are to be exclusively populated by students in their high school classes. Because classes are offered as a cohort at the request of the high school teacher, Quick Start is not able to fulfill the requests of individual students.

Whom does it serve?

Quick Start currently serves students at Centerville High School, Kettering-Fairmont High School, Miami Valley Career Technology Center, Miamisburg High School, Ponitz Career Technology Center and Stebbins High School.

How to Apply

High school teachers at participating school districts can receive a Quick Start Course Request form from (and submit the completed form to) their Career Technology Education (CTE) Directors. The CTE directors then submit the form to the Quick Start Coordinator who makes arrangements for the creation of and registration for approved courses.
