Borrowed from Wikipedia: Dual enrollment allows high school students to get a head start on their college careers. A student may be able to attain an Associate of Arts degree shortly before or after high school graduation. Furthermore, it may ease the transition from high school to college.

Which school districts actively promote dual enrollment?

Brevard Community College claims to "lead the Florida higher education system in dual enrollment." Duval County also has a decent program. But who is leading the nation in dual enrollment?

Not sure where you would find that information, but I do know it is a real nice option in this area. In fact, just in the last couple of weeks there was an article in the small local paper of a girl who graduated from the local Community College with her associates degree a few days before she graduated from High School.
