Why are high school students wanting to participate in CE courses? Here are some submissions from your peers of why they choose to challenge themselves and take concurrent enrollment classes in high school:
My family doesn’t really have money to send me off to college so taking this concurrent class will help me financially later off.
In concurrent enrollment I have to be a lot more responsible and on top of all my classes. I need to do homework more to understand the material and do a little extra to be able to be proficient.
The class is fast paced and you have to hold yourself accountable to not fall behind and I feel like it’s a very realistic college class.
He (teacher) is helping us prepare for college because he is treating us like college students. He expects us to study he lecture before class. He gives us pointers to help us in college. He tells us about techniques that he used in college to help him get through math.
She’s (teacher) giving us assignments that we can do any time we want to; encouraging us to manage our time independently and it’s helping me a lot because I’m able to reward myself with the assignments I’m doing ahead of time.
Taking a concurrent enrollment class really showed me how different a regular high school class is from a college course. It is much more rigorous and exciting you are pushed a little out of your comfort zone with assignments. And you really get a glimpse of how well organized you are and how you would really handle your spare time. I know that if i didn’t take this CE course in high school me and my grade would’ve suffered very much after high school.
