University of Evansville Signs Agreement with Tindley Accelerated Schools

Posted: Monday, May 1, 2017

The University of Evansville has signed an agreement with Charles A. Tindley Accelerated Schools in Indianapolis to begin a dual credit program beginning the 2017-18 academic year.

Tindley Accelerated’s Early College program will allow high school juniors and seniors attending Tindley the opportunity to earn both a high school diploma and up to 36 transferrable college credits. This partnership will support Tindley’s continued progress toward achieving 100% college acceptance.

UE is the exclusive dual credit provider for the 70 juniors and 60 seniors at Tindley who will participate in the program in the fall.

"Tindley is extremely excited to partner with the University of Evansville for the upcoming school year. Our shared values in education and rich instructional content will equip our scholars with a well-rounded curriculum,” said Kelli B. Marshall, chief executive officer at Tindley. “The opportunities presented by the University will also help our students make an educated decision about their college choice after graduating high school."

There are currently five students from Tindley studying at the University of Evansville.

“Tindley students do well at UE,” said Shane Davidson, vice president for enrollment services at the University of Evansville. “The UE experience parallels the individual attention and hands-on experiences these students already receive, making it a good fit for Tindley students. The Early College High School Program will provide an additional means for an easy transition from high school to college while providing an accelerated degree path for these students.”
