Having your child prepare for college in advance is a great idea. Someone who is in High School can be taking courses that are counted for dual credit, i.e. High school and college at the same time. This can be done through programs such as Running Start or through independent study. Brad Voeller has written a book called Accelerated Distance Learning that explains this in detail. He also organized College Prep and College Plus to guide you through the process. (You can find them on Facebook) I’ve attended a few of their Webinars which have been very helpful. By the time your student graduates from High school he/she can be well on the way to having a college degree!
