SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Ivy Tech Community College in South Bend plans to offer an early college program to 11 high schools in that region

The program will allow students to earn a technical certificate or an associate degree by the time they graduate from high school. At Penn High School, about 10 miles east of South Bend, about 120 incoming freshmen have been selected.

Students are part of selected groups, such as first-generation college students, minorities, those who have maintained grade-point averages of 2.75 to 3.5, are on free or reduced lunches, or have passed the ISTEP exam.

Other schools in the program include South Bend Career Academy, Elkhart Area Career Center, Triton, Elkhart Central, Elkhart Memorial, Goshen, Concord, Northridge, Fairfield and Jimtown high schools.
