Three area high schools joined Indiana's Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program, created to increase college- and career-readiness, administered by the University of Notre Dame.

Gavit, Hammond and Lake Central high schools joined 17 other high schools in the state that participate in the program, which now operates in eight states. The AP-TIP program utilizes incentives and training for teachers and students to boost successful outcomes on select AP tests and complements STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) classes.

The announcement was made today at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, and Glenda Ritz, Indiana superintendent of public instruction, welcomed the new schools. The program is expected to grow to include more high schools next year, program sponsors said.
