IU courses offered through the ACP program are taught during the regular school day at the students’ own high schools by ACP certified high school teachers. Certified ACP teachers are appointed to adjunct lecturer status after careful selection and training by Indiana University (IU) faculty. Not all high schools offer all of the available IU courses in the ACP program.
ACP courses provide a challenging college curriculum and productive secondary school experience that can be applied to post-secondary education. Each course covers the same content, has the same expectations, and gives the same credit as the course taught at the IU campus. High school teachers are required to follow the proposed IU syllabi, methodologies, textbooks, and other instructional materials with some flexibility to accommodate individual teaching style. Academic standards of ACP courses are high, and the students’ success will depend upon good work and study habits.
