In high school, how well you did was based through testing, memorization, and repetition. You didn’t need to pay for books, and the registration process was a breeze. However, another question brought up is Why More Students are Choosing Community College over Traditional Four-Year schools? Grace Chen enthusiastically writes how as long as tuition
From professors to locations to job seeking it has been a close run. Nevertheless, in the end, it seems the best solution is to attend a community college for two years, then to finish out at a four-year college. This seems to be the most cost efficient way to become a very accomplished individual. This method also involves a low risk factor in case one realizes maybe school is not for them, and after attaining a (fairly easy) Associate’s they can quit while they’re ahead. Since the end goal of both is a degree, and a Bachelor’s is the better form of the two, four-year is the true winner.
In this model students can have internships or participate in work-study programs while completing graduation requirements online. A high school senior who is short a few credits can choose to have a part-time job while making up credits online. A freshman can have a full schedule in the physical building and add an online course or two each semester in an effort to graduate in as little as three years. For us the pinnacle of success in K-12 should be to create a culture of learning that fully prepares students with the abilities to be successful in life. We feel the global pressures for increased digital citizenship and customized learning.
At ACLC, I could take classes during the school year if my schedule and free periods allowed it. That allowed me to take more classes at the College than any Encinal or Alameda High student. With advantages like free periods and the ability to take college courses year-round that prepare you for college classes and life, I am pleased that I didn’t choose to go to a traditional high

College Decisions For a graduating senior in high school, the most important decision they have to make is about which college to spend the next four, or maybe more years of their life attending. I know that when I was trying to make by college decision I had to research, visit, and compare and contrast all the schools that I liked. It came down to two very excellent, but very different schools. I fell in love with, and got accepted to Saint Leo University, and Boston College. My deciding factors on which school was better for me to attend included location, class size, and price.
I have four requirements that need to be met including, 3.0 GPA or higher, 18 or higher on the ACT, 95% attendance, and a high school diploma. I support free community college because it gives opportunities, it can lower the unemployment rate, and save money. Free community college can give opportunities to lower class people who can’t afford college. If these people want to go to college, but they can’t, now they would be able to. They would be able to receive an education to help them get a job and make money.
High school students have been convinced that the only way to have a career which earns a substantial amount of income is to get a four-year college degree. What about the jobs available to those who attend vocational schools, or get on the job training in a career? It used to be that a high school student was also encouraged to complete classes at the regional occupation program or ROP and not only given the option of an expensive, four year college. With ROP classes, students were able to complete course of their choice, based on the personal interest of the student, to get a real world feel for potential jobs. Students could study different fields such as Air Conditioning repair to animal care to automotive technician.
