AP, Honors, and Dual Credit Presentation
The Early College High School model gives students a head start on the rest of their lives. These small schools allow students to earn both a high school diploma and up to two years of credit toward a bachelor’s degree, or an associate degree. While open to all students, the model specifically serves low-income young people, first-generation college students, English language learners, and students of color, all of whom are statistically underrepresented in higher education and for whom society often has low expectations for academic achievement.
In today’s competitive world, a high school diploma only serves as a stepping-stone in a student’s educational journey. To achieve economic prosperity and lifelong success in the 21st century, all students must graduate high school and move on to college. Early College High Schools remove the academic, financial, and psychological barriers that prevent too many students from advancing to and succeeding in college. Students receive enhanced supports to help them excel both academically and personally. Since students earn college credit while in high school, the time it takes to complete a college degree is condensed. Students and families also benefit from reduced or free tuition costs. Ultimately, Early College High Schools turn obstacles into opportunities for student success.
Dual Credit Courses
Dual credit courses are defined as courses that are taken by high school students which can satisfy requirements for earning both a high school diploma and a college degree. Dual credit courses are taught by regular high school faculty or by regular or adjunct college faculty. Shelbyville High School and Blue River Career Programs have agreements with Indiana University, and Ivy Tech Community College to offer dual credit opportunities to our students.
