A new effort to help students earn more college credits while they are still in high school is underway.

The Indiana Department of Education recently joined forces with the Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program in Indiana. The goal is to help students earn AP credits that can count toward college graduation.

The University of Notre Dame will oversee the program which could really help students during and after high school.

"It really allows you to get an opportunity to find out what college level courses would be like. It's very fast paced and allows you to challenge yourself," said Jaeisha Jones, student.

Pike High School and three others in Indianapolis will participate in this program. Five other Indiana high schools will also participate.

The program will provide educators with training and educational tools to help students.
