Options for Mature High School Sophomore Who Doesn't Want to Switch Schools

Question: I am a sophomore in high school and I love the school I go to but I am no into the whole social scene. I am mature for my age, my grades are average, and I am really interested in graduating early or maybe home school. I do not know which one would be best for me. I don't want to let go of my friends but then again I'm ready for a fresh start. And I do not want to go to a new school. What is your opinion?

Find out if your high school offers a "Dual Enrollment Program." This is where qualified high school students can take classes at local two- or four-year colleges. The students receive high school credit for these courses and sometimes college credit, too. (The latter will depend on where you ultimately enroll in college and what their credit-granting policies are. Many colleges will not allow credit for college courses if you received high school credit for these classes already.)
