Find Your Passion

College-level courses can introduce you to topics and ideas that are not covered in the regular classroom. For example, Environmental Science or Women in Literature. This range of subjects allows you to explore your interests and develop new passions. You may even discover the subject that will become your college major or the focus of your career.

Prepare for College

Showing that you're willing to push yourself by taking rigorous classes in high school can help when you're applying to college. In fact, the level of courses you take now is one of the first things colleges look at.

In addition, college courses earn credits in college. This means you may be able to skip some basic college courses and move directly into interesting advanced classes. This also may allow you to free up enough time to pursue a double major or to study abroad.
