Supporting High School Students in the Transition to College
Spence, Kate; Barnett, Elisabeth
National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools and Teaching (NCREST)
To help the Middle College National Consortium to learn about students' perspectives on the transition to college, the National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools and Teaching (NCREST) conducted two focus groups with 13th grade students at two Middle College-Early College high schools. There was consensus by the students in the focus groups that the early-college (EC) experience was overwhelmingly positive. Some specific aspects of the program that they found positive were the free tuition, the eased transition from high school to college, and the fact that they were able to finish their high school and associates degrees in one year less than it would traditionally take.
