According to the Department of Education, proponents argue that the advantages of these programs:
  1. Prepare students for the academic rigors of college by exposing them to the type of intenst curriculum that research has found to promote bachelor's degree attainment.
  2. Lower the cost of postsecondary education for students by enabling them to earn free colege credits (depending on state policy) and shorten their time to degree completion.
  3. Provide students with more realistic information about the academic and social skills that they will need to succeed in college through their participation. 
  4. Provide curricular options for students, particularly in high schools that, due to small size or inadequate funding, are unable to offer interesting and exciting electives.
