JFF Report: Taking College Courses in High School: A Strategy for College Readiness

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On November 09, 2012 (EST)

Students who take college-level courses while in high school are more than one and a half times more likely to enroll in, persist through, and complete college, according to a new study of more than 30,000 Texas high school graduates by the education nonprofit Jobs for the Future (JFF). The report, Taking College Courses in High School: A Strategy for College Readiness, argues that dual enrollment, in which high school students complete courses for college and high school credit, may be key to states and school districts increasing college and career readiness.
