Accelerated learning serves as a promising tool to provide students the opportunity to move through secondary and postsecondary education at a pace that meets their academic needs. This second webinar in our accelerated learning series will present recent research findings from a rigorous study of Early College High Schools, followed by a discussion of implications for practitioners. Early College High Schools provide students with access to college-preparatory high school courses and credit-bearing college courses in a supportive learning environment.
During this webinar, we will hear from Andrea Berger, Principal Researcher at the American Institutes for Research and the principal investigator for the evaluation of the Early College High School Initiative; Joel Vargas, Vice President at Jobs for the Future (JFF) and leader of JFF’s High School through College team; Dr. Julie Penley from El Paso Community College in Texas; and Mike Sinclair from Brashier Middle Early College in South Carolina. The event will be moderated by Helen Duffy, Deputy Director of the College and Career Readiness and Success Center.
