STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — Valparaiso High School was among 73 schools honored during Wednesday’s Indiana AP Recognition ceremony at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso).

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. 

“Congratulations to Valparaiso High School for standing out academically among other schools in Indiana,” Soliday said. “These students work hard and understand the importance of academics and I look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the future.”

Soliday 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.
