According to a new study, Washington’s popular Running Start program is a national standout when it comes to helping high-school students successfully complete college. 

The Seattle Times reports, Washington state high-school students in Running Start ended up finishing a college degree or certificate, well above the U.S. average.

Running Start is the predominant dual-credit program in this state. It essentially gives high-school students a head start on college by allowing them to enroll in community-college classes for free during their junior and senior years. Some students are able to finish out their high-school years in college classrooms, leaving with a diploma and an associate degree.
