STATEHOUSE (June 12, 2018) — The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Lighthouse Christian Academy for student success on AP exams for the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Jeff Ellington (R-Bloomington).

During the 2018 Indiana AP Recognition Ceremony, the DOE and College Board recognized more than 70 schools for having 25 percent or more of their graduating class earn a score of 3 out of 5 or higher on at least one AP exam.

“AP courses offer students a way to dig deeper and learn more about the subjects they are passionate about,” Ellington said. “The rigorous coursework shows colleges and universities these students are prepared for the next step in their education. Lighthouse Christian Academy is fortunate to have teachers dedicated to helping students grow into successful adults.”

Ellington said high school students take AP exams after they complete courses designed to demonstrate they are prepared to handle college-level work. With a successful AP exam score, a student can usually earn college credit. AP exams are developed by the College Board, a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization that connects students to success and opportunity in higher education.
