More and more high schools across the country now offer some college-credit courses, with data from the National Center for Education Statistics showing that 82 percent of schools offer such programs. And nearly half of students participate in those Advanced Placement classes, according to the NCES.
Jefferson Community College’s EDGE program, the College in High School programs offered by the state colleges in Potsdam and Oswego, and Syracuse University’s Project Advance all offer north country high schoolers such opportunities.
