A New Normal Exists in Gary and Its Headed to Baton Rouge

Friends, when we started talking about high school students in Gary, Indiana graduating with college credits and even Associate Degrees back in 2009, everyone thought we were crazy. But then we had our first student earn his Associate degree while in our high school in 2012. He inspired many others to follow in his foot steps. And they did. Since then, 17 more students have done that.

And, in 2017, we had our first student go further and earn her Bachelor’s degree from Purdue while in our high school. Guess what? She inspired others to follow in her footsteps.

In 2019, we will have 9 more students earn their Associate’s degree and over the next 4 years, we will have 5 more students (pictured above) earn their Bachelor’s degree while in our high school.

That’s the start of a revolutionary change in mindsets among high school students and families.

Our students told me yesterday that this is the new normal!! How about that?

Our students are not only graduating from our high school with college credits and degrees, they are getting a giant head start on lifetime earnings.

When I was 22, I was simply graduating from college and getting started on my lifetime earnings. Our students today are getting a 2 and 4 year head start on most others in the country. Think about that?

And they are doing so free from college debt! Think about that, too!!

It’s a new day in Gary, Indiana! It’s a new day for high school students. It’s a new normal!

And yes, we are excited to bring our model to Baton Rouge in 2019!

All the best!
