When college-bound high school seniors walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, it’s with the realization that there is yet another academic mountain waiting to be climbed.
It can be a daunting thought, but about 40 percent of Lebanon High School’s 975 students are enrolled in classes this year that will earn them college credit as well as credit toward high school graduation.
The Lebanon High School dual credit program started about 20 years ago with a couple of Indiana University freshman courses, said Principal Kevin O’Rourke, “but it’s really been ramped up over the past 10 years.” In 2009 Lebanon High School educators aimed at offering dual credit courses that could earn up to 30 college credits, he said. “Now it’s over 100 credits.” More details in the Lebanon Reporter.
