Stories of Simultaneous High School and College Diplomas
The Accelerate College program, in partnership with Elgin Community College, allows students to earn their high school diploma and Associate’s degree simultaneously. This unique program meets the needs of students who are ready to engage in college coursework, experience the college environment, and develop skills and mindsets that support the transition from high school to postsecondary life. In this episode, Dr. Pearson talks with three students who are part of the second Accelerate College cohort.
