RCS EARLY COLLEGE: FOUR ACADEMIES WITH ONE MISSION
HIBBERD'S EARLY COLLEGE PREPARATORY ACADEMY
The Early College Preparatory Academy provides a unique experience for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders especially selected to participate in this program. FOUR Cohorts learn together preparing students for college level coursework that will begin when students bridge to the Richmond High School Early College hosted at Richmond High School and Ivy Tech Community College.
DENNIS & TEST INTERMEDIATE EARLY COLLEGE PREP ACADEMIES
Additional students qualified for more rigorous academics and ready to develop College Presence enter the Early College for eighth grade for one year of preparation prior to transitioning to the RHS Early College for freshman year.
RHS EARLY COLLEGE
The RHS EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAM has also grown, currently standing at 330 strong. These students are on a pathway to a career, Associate's Degree, or four year college, or AP Experience. When they place 'College Ready,' they have opportunity to begin to take dual credit courses. Perservering students gain a significant amount of College Credits.
