Starting college classes while in high school is a good way to shorten time to degree and reduce college costs.  Students and their parents need to make informed decisions about the pros and cons of starting college course work early. There are many ways to get college credit in high school. How will it fit into the Academic & Career Plan (ACP)? How does it fit into the high school class and extracurricular schedule? How might it influence college applications, acceptance, and transfers? We will discuss opportunities and things to consider before making this big decision. What if students need to start college coursework before middle school?

  • Identify some traits of readiness for college work.
  • Increase awareness of online learning opportunities and how they can blend with a high school schedule.
