College Courses in High School
The Early College Initiative, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, operates in over 20 states, and allows high school students to enroll in college courses at no charge. If your state offers the program, and your teen meets the minimum 3.0 GPA requirement, he can begin earning college credits before he finishes high school.
All courses are taught by college professors, and students earn college credits upon completion. Some students in the program have taken up to two years off their college education by participating.
