Welcome to the Advance College Project program at Franklin Community High School!
ACP is a dual credit program where students take classes taught by their high school teachers for concurrent high school and college credit. Instruction takes place at their high school during the regular school day.
ACP maintains the quality of the content delivered to high school students by carefully selecting qualified high school instructors, providing in-depth training, examining and approving syllabi, and observing the course each time it is taught. What are the requirements to take an ACP course? FCHS requires students to have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 to be eligible to enroll in an ACP course. Students with a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.70 to 2.99 may be eligible through an appeal process.
Why should students consider ACP?
1. Cost - ACP courses are $25.00 per dual credit hour, a significant savings when compared to the cost of the same class on any college campus.
2. Convenience - Rather than having to travel to Bloomington, Indianapolis, or any other destination, all ACP classes are taught at FCHS by trained faculty members. In addition, taking a college class while still in high school will ultimately free up time later in college.
3. Conditioning - The rigor of ACP courses help condition students for the demands of college.
