Benefits of Graduating High School Early
Many people are opting to graduate school early. Even school districts and the government are exploring investments in early graduation programs. Graduating high school early is not for everyone, but for those that are interested and ready, graduating high school early can be especially helpful for those who are eager to focus on their professions, or who are considerably self-directed and focused.
Graduating high school early can get you to college sooner. Getting to college sooner than your peers can also mean graduating college earlier and thus entering the workforce sooner. Graduating early urges students to get a head start on life – whatever challenges may be awaiting them outside the door.
In order to meet the requirements for your school’s graduation program, talk to your school and determine how many more credits, and which required courses, you have left to graduate by a certain time. Do you need science, math, or history credits to graduate? Do you have elective credits that you need to fulfill? The American Academy offers a diverse selection of online high school courses – all traditional subjects in addition to unique selections that your school may not offer. So, in your senior year, you can opt to take Human Biology for a science credit,and Calculus for a math credit. You can select Horse Management as an elective, and Digital Photography to go towards either your art or elective credits.
