This article provides information on advanced placement retirement. In a July 2005 article of Mark Oppenheimer in the Wall Street Journal, he called this trend in retirement planning the next frontier in senior adult communities. The idea behind advanced placement is that people with intellectual and cultural interests may want to do more with their retirement than play golf. As the baby boomers age, many are seeking a second chance to do college right. This proves that retirement is evolving into something parents and grandparents would not recognize, largely from the desires and interests of the baby boomers.
