On Sept. 30th 2015, Emmerich Manual High School was awarded the Outstanding New High School Partner Award for the 2015-2016 school year by Ivy Tech Community College. We were awarded this honor because of the expanded number of dual credit options available at Manual in multiple college and career readiness pathways. Our work to hire teachers who meet Ivy tech credentials and support multiple opportunities in college and career readiness for our students were highlighted at the Ivy tech breakfast luncheon. We are among over 170 schools who have partnerships with Ivy Tech Community College. Currently, we offer 15 dual credit courses and 2 certificate programs at Emmerich Manual High School.
