Research shows that high school students who participate in an accelerated learning option, such as concurrent enrollment, benefit greatly from:
- Exposure to high expectations.
- Participation in challenging courses.
- The momentum gained by earning college credits while still in high school.
Participating high schools also reap the benefits of concurrent enrollment. Partnerships developed between university faculty and high school teachers provide learning and training opportunities that may not otherwise exist. Additionally, concurrent enrollment students stay at the high school instead of leaving to attend classes at a university. Finally, through participation in concurrent enrollment, high schools establish themselves as education leaders by setting high standards, providing outstanding offerings, and preparing students for the 21st century.
