Oregon's Accelerated Learning Programs

Accelerated Learning

Educational experiences that provide high school students with the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school are known in Oregon as “accelerated learning” programs. Accelerated Learning Programs aim to provide bridges that support and encourage a college-going culture and reduce gaps in college access and academic achievement. They can smooth the transition into a college or university by enabling high school students to successfully earn college credit and to be better prepared for postsecondary expectations. REL- Education Northwest Research (2018) states that students who participate in accelerated learning during high school are 30% more likely to graduate from high school, 25% more likely to enroll in college and 22% more likely to persist in college.
