The benefits of college accessibility for high school students are numerous. In addition to being exposed to the rigors of college course work, the process of interacting with college professors and experiencing a college campus enhances students’ preparedness beyond academics. While still attending high school, students become familiar with the manner college environments function and learn to take advantage of the multitude of resources provided at the collegiate level. Moreover, research indicates that individuals who experience dual enrollment programs are more likely to enroll in college and to complete college degrees than those who did not participate in a dual enrollment program, particularly first-generation college students. Overall, each year, more than eighty percent of Preparatory Charter’s seniors successfully complete college coursework before receiving a high school diploma.
