Several ILHS students got en education on the ins and outs of College Credit Plus on Aug. 28. This program allows high school students to earn college credits for taking advanced high school courses.
Select juniors who qualified for the classes met with Kathy Simmindinger from Rhodes State College in Lima to learn to track their grades at the college level. She told them, “You must understand … you really are a college student. You really are in a college course and you really are starting to build a college transcript.”
Simmindinger also explained how to access Rhodes State computer programs and informed them of drop dates.
Ohio recently made changes to the state’s College Credit Plus program, placing the former Post Secondary Enrollment option and dual enrollment classes under one umbrella. Instructors at high schools who teach College Credit Plus courses must undergo extra training in order to do so.
Indian Lake High School partners with Rhodes State, the University of Findlay and Urbana University for the program. College Credit Plus courses at ILHS include: American Literature, American Government, Graphic Design, CADD, Calculus, Chemistry II, Journalism, Spanish IV, Statistics, Psychology, Sociology and Human Biology.
