This article, from CNBC, shares the success story of Gabriel Quezada, 17, who is on track to complete about a year and a half of free college credits by the time he finishes high school. It is exciting to note that Gabriel is saving thousands of dollars and over a year of his precious time by taking the Early College path. Although initially Gabriel didn’t want to do Early College, he is happy that his Father encouraged him to try it. Rather than taking the traditional high school path, he is now ready to transfer to a 4-year University with almost a year and a half of free college credits earned while he was also completing high school. Jump Education started in 2020 to spread the word about an amazing opportunity that teens have to earn lots of college credit while also completing high school. Early College teens who have successfully completed the Early College path with Jump Education are thriving! Because the concept of Early College is still fairly new, some teens and parents are a little hesitant at first. Often, they just need a little more information about this creative new approach to education. Major news outlets are beginning to share inspiring stories of teens who have benefited from Early College.
What is Early College?
Early College allows teens to take undergraduate-level classes offered through a local community college, at little to no cost. Early College has two paths: Early College High School programs and Early Community College.
Early College High School programs provide a great opportunity for teens who are looking to get their high school diploma and one to two years of free college credits. Tuition is paid by your Early College high school and made free to you.
Early Community College is a great option for teens who are looking to advance to college without a high school diploma and earn an Associate Degree through your local Community College. Tuition is paid by the family for college courses.
