    I live near Seattle. Here in Washington they have something called Running Start.
    A student in the 11th or 12th grade can attend a local community college and use the classes to satisfy requirements for both high school and college. The high school pays the tuition, the student has to come up with the money for books and other fees.

    At the end of two years they can graduate with both their high school diploma and and AA degree.

    I know several students who have done just that. They go off to the university and in four years, some have a masters degree.

    Great idea.

    A caution: Snow is a very good school academically so don't expect easy sledding if you enroll in any of their courses. (Too bad I can't say that for all the schools in the State.)
