VU High School Student Programs

Do you learn by doing rather than from a textbook? Most of us do too and you've found an excellent school. We teach so many courses with a hands-on approach.

As a high school student, Vincennes University provides you with many ways to help make college possible.

  • 21st Century Scholars
    The 21st Century Scholars Program was introduced in 1990 by the State of Indiana as a method of raising the educational aspirations of low and moderate income families. The program seeks to ensure that all Indiana children are equipped with the tools to afford a college education. In 1995, the first group of 21st Century Scholars began enrollment at Indiana colleges and universities.
  • ETS
    ETS is a TRIO/Talent Search Program. These programs were created by the United States Congress to encourage qualified students to continue their education. The mission of the Vincennes University Educational Talent Search program, through outreach programming in financial, personal, career, and academic advisement, is to assist qualified income-eligible and/or first generation students to re-enter secondary school, complete secondary school, and undertake a program of postsecondary education and complete a post-secondary education program.
    Project ASPIREE is a Federal TRIO/Talent Search program --- Achieving Success through Participation In Reaching Educational Excellence.There are many challenges for students who desire to go beyond high school and on to college and Project ASPIREE can help.
