Does taking college courses in high school help students?

They take extra time. Sometimes they cost your family extra money. Are the resources directed at taking courses for college credit in high school paying off?
 
According to the study by the American Institutes for Research, http://www.air.org, released today, high school students who take college courses are more likely to graduate from high school and enroll in a two or four year college after high school graduation. Results included students from a variety of family income levels and the impact on all socioeconomic groups was positive. In addition to the academic achievement benefits, kids who take college courses in high school save money when they enter college.
 
The opportunity to earn some college credit while in high school is reserved for students who are ready for college level coursework. That means that parents who want their kid to be able to take advantage of this option while in high school should be preparing their kid before they ever get to high school by making sure they have solid academic preparation. Are your kids maximizing their academic potential so that they will be prepared to take advantage of future opportunities?
