STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — Franklin Central High School and Roncalli High School were among 73 schools honored during Wednesday’s Indiana AP Recognition ceremony at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Mike Speedy (R-Indianapolis).

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.

“Franklin Central and Roncalli continue to stand out academically in Indiana,” Speedy said. “I congratulate these young students and wish them success as they pursue great things in the future.”

Speedy 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.
