I think it is relateively new

Our kids here don’t even have to leave their school to take college level classes. I know my son didn’t as a Junior when he took Accounting 101. Pretty sure he did this year as a Senior though when he took a business class. There is no required guidance here. We did meet with the guidance office last year when he was considering applying to the Naval Academy.

Never tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon
