Hi Deborah,

I personally believe that rushing is not a good idea. It is important that you get the proper foundations before moving forward and rushing may not help. High school is a very important part of your life, when you start getting adult acquaintance, long lasting friendship and simply enjoy life. I would recommend you keeps those years for you to expand your social connections, have friends, learn life. You'll get to college and work fast enough.
If money is a concern, I suggest you find student jobs, that give you some incomes while you can still learn and live and enjoy social activities. Social has been moved on the side this year because of a pandemic, don't waste more.
Really my 2-cents.

Brayden’s Answer

Hello!

There are a few ways to graduate early, but I think the best way would be to locate you closest community college and take some classes through them. Many times they offer equivalent courses to the ones offered at your high school but only they are accelerated meaning you will be able to finish faster. I would suggest however that high school is where you create some of the best relationships and you really get to do a lot of fun things that you wont necessarily get to do once you graduate so instead of graduating early possibly just taking college courses to get ahead will allow you to enjoy some of the fun times of high school and also get ahead.

Hopefully this helps! Good luck!

Hi Deborah,

I would caution against rushing through high school too quickly. High school schedules generally aren't very flexible, so if you try to graduate early you may end up missing classes and opportunities that would have been helpful.

I would instead recommend trying to obtain college credits while you're still in high school. There are several ways to do this:
AP classes and exams
IB classes and exams
Dual enrollment (take classes at a university while you're still in high school)
Take classes during the summer/winter session

Hi Deborah,

I am not sure that I would recommend graduating from high school early. High school is certainly an experience that you want to savor. Being the youngest person in college can be challenging. What I might offer is what my niece did, she moved to a school where she could earn college credit while she was in high school. I am not sure how it works in New York, but my niece had to drive herself to a school that she did not live near. This can make for a challenging commute. Some of the classes were actual college classes, so she got into the college routine before she was actually in college. She did not graduate from high school early, but she finished her bachelor's degree in three years rather than four. So she got a headstart on going into a Masters program. The age difference there is not as wide as going to college early.
