We see it more and more- students jumping ahead in their studies (or wanting to) through dual enrollment. There are many reasons for this, with the primary one being that students and parents realize the magnitude of how it can affect their future. Students don't need to be subjected to sitting in classrooms where they aren't challenged and are bored as a result. Some students were made for a challenge, and they welcome it. Maybe you fit this, or maybe your child does. Dual enrollment is a great solution to keep students challenged and helps them increase momentum in the direction of their goals and dreams for the future.
