Close to 1,000 area students are getting an early start on their college careers by taking classes while they are still in high school.

This fall Piedmont Virginia Community College has seen a 15% increase in high school students taking college classes.

Through this program students earn both high school and college credit at the same time.

Not only are these students getting a jump start, but they are also saving more money in the process.

"It's a super opportunity for high school students. Not only can they get a jump start on their college education while earning these credits while they are in high school but there's no charge on these classes for students so they're free," said Anita Showers, Public Relations Specialist for PVCC.

PVCC offers 22 dual-enrollment classes.
