Image result for advanced placement The Advanced Placement (AP) testing program is under the auspices of The College Board. AP classes follow a nationally recognized college curriculum. The textbooks and materials used in these classes are the same as many college textbooks and materials. Many hours outside of class are spent reading, writing, and preparing for the course. The goal of each AP course is to prepare students for the AP exam in that subject in May. The AP exam is scored on a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high). Colleges may grant college course credits or advanced placement into a higher-level college course for students who achieve a 5, 4, and sometimes a 3 on the AP exam. Students are expected to take the AP exam if they are taking the AP class. The cost of each AP exam is around $85. The state of Indiana usually pays the fee for AP Calculus AB, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, and AP Physics. Students in AP classes will be given information about registering for the AP exams in March and exam fees will be collected at the high school prior to the exams. The exams will be given in May during school hours following the nationally established testing schedule.

Dual Credit Courses
Dual credit courses are defined as courses that are taken by high school students which can satisfy requirements for earning both a high school diploma and a college degree. Dual credit courses are taught by regular high school faculty or by regular or adjunct college faculty. Shelbyville High School and Blue River Career Programs have agreements with Indiana University, Ivy Tech Community College, and Vincennes University to offer dual credit opportunities to our students.

The Advance College Project (ACP) is a cooperative program between Indiana University and selected high schools within the states of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. The Project offers college credit to high school seniors who enroll in IU courses that are offered at their high schools. Shelbyville High School offers Calculus, Finite Math, Chemistry, American History, and Elementary Composition/Literary Interpretation to students through the ACP program. Students taking these courses will have the opportunity to enroll with IU for ACP credit at the beginning of the school year. Students are required to pay a fee to IU for the course and in return, may earn college credit from IU. Fee waivers are available for students who receive free or reduced lunches. The ACP program maintains an updated listing of colleges that will accept this course for transfer credit from IU. Detailed information about the ACP program can be obtained from the teacher or the counseling office..
