Longtime Partnership with Ivy Tech Earns Students College Credits

The Victory College Prep Early Ivy Program is a trailblazing partnership between VCP and Ivy Tech Community College that extends dual-credit opportunities to our high school seniors. Program classes are hosted at Ivy Tech campuses in Indianapolis, earning students experience required for high school graduation and credit hours for college.

Early Ivy is open to students that express interest in careers that require a college degree. They must also meet eligibility requirements, including an Ivy Tech mandated 2.8-grade-point-average.

The program splits into four quarters during the academic year, representing one college course per 8-week quarter. Students that participate in all four quarters graduate high school with 12 college credits to their name, the equivalent of a completed college semester. Approximately 50% of all seniors will earn at least six college credits through the program. 

The first quarter of the 2021-2022 academic year saw a record-breaking performance by students. Every enrolled student earned their possible three college credits, and 85% were awarded an A or B in their Ivy Tech course.
