More than 2,300 Chicago Public Schools students are getting college credit at 30 high schools across the city in a program that has increased threefold since it began in 2011.

CPS on Thursday unveiled its Early College Initiative program figures, showing an increase in the number of CPS juniors and seniors at participating high schools gaining free college credits.

CPS says it hopes to meet a goal of 4,000 participating students by the 2015-2016 school season. CPS began with just five participating schools and expects to have 38 schools involved by next school year.
