8 COLLEGE READINESS OPPORTUNITIES AT PHS Students at PHS have several opportunities to potentially earn college-level credits while still in high school. Doing so will save both TIME and MONEY when you reach the post-secondary level. We encourage you to consider the options carefully, noting your responsibilities for enrollment, payment, etc. The following is a summary of opportunities: Advanced Placement Courses: Psychology, Spanish IV, Calculus, English 11 Honors, Statistics, AP Biology Advanced Placement (AP) courses are college-level courses and require corresponding exams in May of the year the student is enrolled in the class. There is a cost factor for each exam for which the student is responsible, with a few exceptions (e.g. students who have free/reduced lunch status, students enrolled in courses for which the Dep't of Education covers the cost, which is determined every year). The cost for the 13/14 school year was $89; the cost for the 14/15 school year should be comparable. Students who earn a 3, 4, 5 on the cumulative standardized exam given in May could earn credits from their respective colleges of choice. Advance College Project Courses (also known as ACP): English 12 Honors, Physics, Chemistry II The Advance College Project (ACP) is a partnership between Indiana University South Bend and Plymouth High School. Students who enroll in the above-named classes will have opportunity to apply for IU credit, if they qualify (junior/senior with a gpa of 7.0/12.0). The cost for the credits is $25 per credit and must be paid to IUSB. Enrolling in IU courses will result in an official IU course transcript, and the student's IU grade will become part of his/her permanent college academic record. These classes are considered dual credit because students will earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Students are allowed to take the high school course for high school credits without applying for IU/college-level credits. Ivy Tech Dual Credit Program: AP Biology, Honors Government, Honors Economics, Spanish III, Spanish IV, Psychology, Honors US History, Calculus, English 11 Honors, PLTW Intro to Engineering Design, PLTW Principles of Engineering, PLTW Digital Electronics, PLTW Computer Integrated Manufacturing Plymouth High School has formed a partnership with Ivy Tech South Bend as well. Students who enroll in the above-named courses will have opportunity to apply for Ivy Tech credit, if they qualify (meet pre-requisite test scores on the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and/or Accuplacer exams). There is no cost to the student for these credits. Enrolling in Ivy Tech courses will result in an official Ivy Tech course transcript and the student's grade will become part of his/her permanent college academic record. Students enrolled in AP courses that are also listed here will be able to work with their college of choice for best credit transfer (however, each will be expected to take the AP exam in May as part of the class). These classes are considered dual credit because students will earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Students are allowed to take the high school course for high school credits without applying for Ivy Tech/college-level credits. Advanced Life Sciences Purdue University: ALS: Foods, ALS: Animals Students who enroll in the above-named course will have opportunity to apply for Purdue University credit. The cost for the credits is $25 per credit and must be paid to Purdue. Students will be required to take a Purdue final exam in order to earn the credits offered. Enrolling in Purdue courses will result in an official Purdue course transcript and the student's grade will become part of his/her permanent college academic record. These classes are considered dual credit because students will earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Students are allowed to take the high school course for high school credits without applying for Purdue/college-level credits. Vocational Courses various institutions: Auto Technology, Construction Technology, Computer Network Technology, Health Science, Precision Machining, Early Childhood Education Students who enroll in the above-named vocational courses will have opportunity to apply for credits through various post-secondary institutions. Students will work with their respective teachers in order to follow the appropriate process. These classes are considered dual credit because students will earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Students are allowed to take the high school course for high school credits without applying for college-level credits.

The IU credit is transferable to many other colleges nationwide, providing students earn a grade of C or higher. Students may enroll in the class for high school credit only; they are not required to enroll in the college course. The high school course receives weighted grades. In Trimester A/B, students in W131 examine issues in varied disciplinary fields and cultivate reading, writing, and analytic skills. Students summarize arguments, identify the structure of claims, and examine the strength of evidence offered in support of those claims. Through a sequence of analytical responses, students demonstrate not only that they comprehend the argument of experts, but they can also formulate, articulate, and defend claims of their own. In Trimester B/C, students in L202 explore the process of literary analysis. Students use techniques for close reading, develop a framework for articulating and supporting
20 interpretations, and work with an array of classic and contemporary texts including short story, poetry, drama, film, and novels. Students do extensive reading, write in response to literature, raise significant questions of themselves and of the text, and discover interrelationships among the works studied. The ultimate goal is for students to formulate precise, thoughtful, and in-depth responses to their reading, using the analytical powers they developed in W131.
