Q: What is the difference between traditional dual enrollment and early college high school?
A: In short, both programs offer students the opportunity to pursue college-level, credit-bearing course work while still in high school.
Generally, Early College High Schools provide college credit–bearing course work in a smaller, supportive classroom setting intended to boost the level of preparation for continued college work.
Dual-enrollment courses, however, may be offered in a variety of settings, including at traditional, comprehensive high schools or on college campuses.
