Last year, the state of Arizona launched an innovative program designed to allow high achieving high school students the opportunity to graduate after their sophomore year!
The program, called "Move On When Ready," helps talented student move on to college after they prove they are capable of taking college-level courses without extra assistance. At the end of a student's sophomore year, a rigorous exam is administered... if the student performs at a college-ready level, he or she is given a high school diploma; at that point the student can stay in high school and take more advanced courses for some selective colleges, they may enter community college, or go on to pursue career and technical courses.
There are now 30 schools across the country involved in this or similar programs... would you be ready for college at age 15 or 16?!?!
