In this article, the author features Bard High School Early College, the first public school in the country to offer a free, full-time college curriculum--and all the credits that go with it--to high schoolers. In Bard's four-year program, students race through high school requirements in 9th and 10th grades, then take college courses in 11th and 12th grades. A student who graduates from this hybrid institution receives an associate of arts degree and has enough credits to enter a four-year college as a junior. With challenging courses and about four hours of homework a night, the program is not easy. The work is difficult but the school provides tutoring, and the rest of the learning gap, if any, has to be made up with sheer drive.
