January Issue Brief: Not Just a High School Diploma

High school students are now graduating with much more than their high school diplomas – some have already earned an Associate’s degree or industry-recognized credentials. Many have amassed enough AP, IB, or community college credits to begin their postsecondary studies a semester or two ahead. Research is showing that these early college/credentialing models promote college persistence and completion.

In Core Education’s January issue brief, we explore opportunities being offered across the country for high school students to earn college credits and/or industry-recognized credentials before graduation. We look at early-college high school models, dual enrollment, opportunities for online study paired with CLEP testing, and available credentials.
