Jump Education supports families in doing high school differently
How it works
Early College High School programs
A good option for the family that values the financial savings and wants to be part of a program
Early Community College
A good option for the family looking for high school alternatives, valuing more freedom and maximum flexibility
When you go against the norm or choose a path less traveled, it can feel risky. Even a risk you feel good about taking can make a family worried. How do you know you’re doing the right thing?
No one can tell you what the “right” decision is for your family. What we can tell you is that students who choose the Early College path report higher levels of satisfaction and have greater persistence rates in college, meaning they are more likely to continue on and complete a college degree. This risk is one that generally pays off.
Potential Gains of Early College
Better physical and mental health - virtually all Early College students report increased levels of health and happiness
Increased confidence - attending college classes can make an Early College teen feel proud
A greater capacity for innovative thinking - the diversity represented in a community college classroom exposes teens to a wider variety of thought
Being part of an equity booster - Early College started as a way to encourage low-income and ethnic minorities to increase their attendance in higher ed
Raising a better grown up,
not just a better college student.
