University of Delta High School


Delta High School has a long history of offering dual-credit courses (classes that count for both high school and college credit).  In 2013, that history culminated in the formation of the University of Delta High School, which is a formal program of dual-credit classes that form pathways to college or technical certifications.

Delta is one of only 38 certified Early College High Schools in the state of Indiana.  Delta was the 12th high school in the state to receive endorsement.  We were endorsed again in 2019.

A total of 81 percent of Delta's Class of 2020 had at least some dual credits.  The goal for Indiana high schools is to have at least 25 percent of seniors with college credits.

In partnership with Ball State University and Ivy Tech State College, the University of Delta High School offers students the opportunity to choose from more than 100 college credits prior to high school graduation.

As a result, many recent graduates have been able to enter college as at least a sophomore in standing.  A total of 22 percent of the Class of  2020 had completed at least one year of college.

Some have graduated college in three or fewer years.  Many families have saved tens of thousands of dollars as a result of the UDHS program.
