Although the betterment of the students undergoing through the programme can be observed, it will not be attributed to the programme alone as other factors can contribute to the exemplary performance. Students will gain advantage through the knowledge gained at high school while narrowing achievement gap will be through the creation of equity between students with different capabilities. Students’ high school experiences will be enriched through providing the students with a chance to enjoy academic programmes, enabling them to study with intensity, depth and better perspective (Challenge Success, 2013). The programme will be an indicator of quality in education thereby assessing the capacity of making schools better.
The programme provides students with a myriad of opportunities while enabling them to take challenging courses in college. The impacts on the programme on the schools and students however, are difficult to substantiate. In seeking to gain maximum benefits from the programme, students should consider understanding their reasons for enrolling into the programme, by consideration of all elements involved. Educators on the other hand must consider the level of involvement which they would like from the programme, before implementing it into their institutions. This can be achieved through a discussion with the various stakeholders of the programme (Challenge Success, 2013).
