Whether you call it early college high school, dual enrollment, or college acceleration, the line is blurring between high school and college, and for good reason. Students who earn college credit in high school are more likely to graduate high school as well as earn a four-year degree, and they do so earlier in life than their age-level peers who did not participate in early college programs.
In February’s issue brief from Core Education, we explore early college programs, look at legislation that is improving access to these programs, and review research findings related to dual enrollment. We also begin to unpack the equity issues that accompany college acceleration.
