Often known as AP, there are 35 classes endorsed by the College Board in which a secondary student can earn college credit by successful meeting criteria established by high education institutions on a nationally given and scored Advanced Placement examination. Students also earn high school credit upon successful completion of the course(s). Each AP Exam score is a weighted combination of the student's scores on the multiple-choice section and the free-response section. The final score is reported on a 5-point scale:
5 = extremely well qualified
4 = well qualified
3 = qualified
2 = possibly qualified
1 = no recommendation
EVSC offers 22 of the 35 courses in our high schools at this time and are continuing to expand offerings.
Often known as IB, International Baccalaureate is a rigorous international pre-university course of study, leading to examinations, that meets the needs of highly motivated and academically superior secondary school students. IB has a comprehensive classics curriculum (languages, sciences, mathematics, and humanities) that allows its graduates to fulfill education requirements of various nations. Only schools approved by the IB organization may offer the program. Bosse High School is home to the only IB Programme in EVSC and offers 12 IB courses.
Students can earn credit at two levels while enrolled in one course. While this is usually college credit and high school credit while enrolled in a course of study, it could also apply to receiving high school credit for a course taken while in an earlier grade Dual Credit courses rare offered throughout EVSC and are endorsed by the University of Southern Indiana (78 courses), Vincennes University, and Ivy Tech College 63 courses).
