STATEHOUSE (June 15, 2017) – Homestead Senior High School and Whitko High School were among 73 schools honored during Wednesday’s Indiana AP Recognition ceremony at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Christopher Judy (R-Fort Wayne).

The Indiana Department of Education and Indiana College Board celebrated the success of these schools, where at least 25 percent of the graduating class earned a score of three or higher on at least one AP exam.

“Taking and successfully passing AP exams helps demonstrate to universities that students are ready for college,” Judy said. “A quarter of the graduating class completing these challenging courses is an outstanding achievement. Congratulations to the local students for their hard work and dedication in preparing for the next step in their academic careers.”

Judy said AP exams are tests taken by high school students after they complete a course designed to demonstrate they are prepared to handle college-level work. With a successful score, these students can also earn college credit. These exams are developed by the College Board, a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization that connects students to success and opportunity in higher education.
