Cruiser Accel

All Groveport Madison High School students have many opportunities to prepare for graduation and life after graduation. Cruiser Accel accelerates students' career and postsecondary readiness. Cruiser Accel is an alternative school for students who need alternative pathways to better serve their current situations and future plans. The Cruiser Accel alternative school is at 4500 S Hamilton Road, across the intersection from Groveport Madison High School.
During the 2023-24 school year, the students attending Cruiser Accel are focusing on credit recovery. Getting students back on schedule to earn high school course credits is a clear priority during the initial year at the alternative school. Students work within two online platforms to demonstrate what they've learned with the advantage of having the assistance of GMHS teachers in Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies and an intervention specialist. Teachers monitor students' work in the online platforms and work with individual students and groups of students who need instruction that corresponds with the online instruction and assessment. Credit recovery, however, is just the first of many services that Cruiser Accel will offer.
At Cruiser Accel, students will primarily focus on Work-Based Learning (WBL) and earning graduation seals like the OhioMeansJobs Readiness Seal and Community Service Seal. Other WBL activities include working for local businesses, Groveport Madison Schools, and the City of Groveport. Additionally, Cruiser Accel students will have Career and Postsecondary Readiness training that includes being remediation-free for college, earning an industry-approved credential, and preparing for the military.
Groveport Madison continues to work with partners to best use the more than 9,000 square foot space. Plans include adding classrooms to the interior of the building, creating innovative spaces with various media and tech-based tools and training, building a partner space where businesses can train students on job-specific machinery, and building a teacher preparation program for GMHS students. The district also is interested in building a U.S. Army Junior ROTC program at the campus where Cruiser Accel is located.
