STATEHOUSE (June 13, 2018) — The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Homestead Senior High School for student AP exam success during the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne).

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.

“When talking about college admissions, nothing may be more important than the quality of a high school student’s course load,” Judy said. “Colleges not only examine an applicant’s GPA, they also look at the quality of their course work. This award reflects the academic rigor Homestead Senior High School offers its students to prepare them for their next step.”

Judy 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.
