As the need for diverse and highly educated talent continues to rise, community colleges across the country have stepped into an essential role of preparing students for high-growth industries. They prepare students for this college-to-career experience by providing affordable and accessible pathways to degrees and certificates. One such program, The Reynolds Advance College Academies (ACA) in Virginia, provides outstanding high school students the opportunity to earn an Associate degree while completing the requirements for their high school diploma.

In this episode of the Mission Forward podcast, we explore Reynolds’ unique high school-to-career experience through the eyes of Logan Brown, a graduate of the early college high school program, and a fellow at Mission Partners. Conversation moderated by Carolyn Berkowitz.
