Information on Early College Application Process

In partnership with Vincennes University, New Palestine High School is proud to offer three different Early College options to students currently in the 8th-grade.
1.) Students can earn an Associate Degree (up to 60 college credits) in a cohorted model with other students.
2.) Students can earn what's called the Indiana College Core (up to 30 college credits).
3.) Students can take dual credit courses as they see fit in their schedule, without necessarily committing to either of the two above tracks.

This link will take you to a presentation with information regarding the program.  You will also find information regarding a virtual parent/guardian Q&A night. This will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. The link is included in the presentation to join.  Representatives from both NPHS and VU will be available to answer questions.

Applications will open on Thursday, Jan. 26. We will send applications both to student email addresses and via ParentSquare on this date.  A list of questions asked at the Q&A night will be sent as well for those unable to attend.  The application will be due on Friday, Feb. 3.

We are excited to welcome our next cohort of students!  

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
