College in High School Alliance

The College in High School Alliance (CHSA), formally established in 2017, is a coalition of leading national organizations committed to policies that support authentically collegiate dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, and early college high schools. CHSA believes that greater legislative support for these models at the federal, state, and local levels will significantly improve the secondary and postsecondary outcomes of students, particularly those from low-income and middle-class backgrounds.

CHSA Goals

  • Develop and advance a shared federal policy platform for the new Administration
  • Help states establish the policy environments to develop, strengthen, and expand these programs
  • Raise awareness of the model and its impact on student achievement  
  • Marshal existing resources and cultivate new champions with diverse perspectives to support the growth of these programs 

Policy Recommendations

"The Every Student Succeeds Act" enables states and districts to help more young people enter and complete college by implementing school designs that improve the transition between high school and higher education. View the CHSA guide for implementing dual enrollment and early college.
