Loogootee High School is being recognized by the Indiana Department of Education for its efforts
to provide Indiana students with access to and success in Dual Credit courses at a ceremony on
November 6, 2017 at the Indiana State House.
Loogootee High School offers 34 dual credit courses worth over 110 college credits. LHS also
offers 33 STEM courses. One of the dual credit pathways Loogootee offers is the General
Education 30 Core Certificate. Students completing 10 dual credit classes from the certificate
listing will have earned 30 general education credits that all public colleges in Indiana must accept
as their 30 hours of college. In all, LHS students can earn up to two (2) years of college credits
saving their families over $20,000 in college costs.
During the 16-17 school year, 119 LHS students completed a variety of dual credit classes earning
over 400 college credits. This equates to savings in college tuition, books and fees for LHS
families of over $80,000 from one year of classes at LHS.
LHS has strong dual credit and STEM education programs for students. University partnerships
include: Indiana University, Indiana State University, Ivy Tech Community College, Oakland City
University, and Vincennes University. Along with dual credit classes, Ivy Tech also partners with
LHS to provide a Graduation and Career Coach - Stephanie Stoll. Mrs. Stoll’s responsibilities
include working with students to find their future pathways.
Andrea Huff, principal of LHS, and LCSC Board Member, Nancy Summers, will represent
Loogootee Schools at the recognition ceremony.
