"Concurrent enrollment" is a term I had never even heard until the end of my sophomore year in high school. It is when a high school student can take college classes and the district will also pay the tuition, in most cases. I immediately was gravitated towards it. Though still keeping in mind that I would be missing the "high school experience," I knew that a free college education was a privilege and a means to help pay for something I was stressing about paying for myself well before I got to it. My high school years had been a drab so far and I thought it would be a nice escape from the drama of high school. This is one of my best decisions I had made for myself in my life.
