This year, 30 Perry Central students will graduate with the Indiana College Core, saving them time and money on college. Obtaining an ICC Certificate means earning at least 30 dual credits and saving, on average, $275 per credit hour (a combined savings of $247,464 in tuition costs for these 30 students). #EarlyCollegeWeek @CELLuindy

A big THANK YOU to our school counselors, Lauren Blake, Brittney Carter, Kelly Cash, Dana Harris, Tony Keown, and Jordan Nonte, who make a tremendous difference for students, staff, and families in our community.
