Who We Are at EFCTS
Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools serves 16 school districts in Franklin, Fairfield, and Pickaway counties. It covers an area of 700 square miles and is the seventh-largest career and technical district geographically in the state. Students in 11th and 12th grade are eligible to attend.
The District has two main campuses — Eastland Career Center in Groveport and Fairfield Career Center in Carroll, with satellite locations at six of its associate high schools: Canal Winchester, Gahanna Lincoln’s Clark Hall, Groveport Madison, New Albany, Pickerington North, and Reynoldsburg’s Livingston Campus.
Students in 11th and 12th grade in our 16 associate school districts or who reside within the communities served by our 16 associate schools (private school, homeschooled, etc.) are eligible to attend and are encouraged to apply in 10th grade. Students who are eligible to attend an Eastland-Fairfield participating school, and who meet admission requirements, will have first priority in all programs. Students admitted through open enrollment, who meet admission requirements, will have second priority. Learn more about the admissions process at http://www.eastlandfairfield.com/HowtoApply.aspx
The academic courses available through Eastland-Fairfield will help you connect what you’re doing in high school with the world of opportunities that await you upon graduation. The courses you will take at Eastland-Fairfield are determined by the credits you’ve already earned, the requirements of your career-technical program, the requirements for graduation from your home school, and the requirements for admission into a post-secondary program. We offer more than 30 academic courses.
Graduation & Diploma
Students enrolled in an Eastland-Fairfield program will graduate and receive their diploma from their home high school. The career-technical program is simply an extension of the learning opportunities available for families enrolled in our partnering districts. By completing a career-technical program, students will receive transcripted elective credits from the courses being taken during their time at Eastland-Fairfield. They will also receive a “Career Passport”, which complements their diploma and showcases their competencies earned in their career-technical program, along with personal and professional accomplishments.
Transportation is provided by each partner high school to both the Eastland and Fairfield campuses. Satellite students must provide their own transportation. If students participate in school-to-work, apprenticeships, internships, etc., they are required to provide their own transportation.
Students attend either the Eastland and Fairfield campuses from 8:05 a.m. until 2:19 p.m., Monday through Friday. Buses depart both campuses at 2:24 p.m. The day consists of half the day spent in academic classes and half the day spent in the career-technical lab.
