Indiana Academic All-Stars
The Indiana Association of School Principals’ Indiana Academic All-Stars program is open to all high schools accredited by the Indiana Department of Education. Each high school may nominate one senior for consideration as an Academic All-Star. Schools are directed to select nominees based on criteria such as number of advanced classes taken (AP, IB, ACP, and/or dual credit), Standardized Test Scores, Extracurricular activities, both academic and non-academic, Leadership and Community Service and Involvement.
Rising Stars of Indiana is a non-competitive recognition program, designed to honor high school juniors for their academic achievement. By allowing schools to identify outstanding scholars during their Junior year, we hope to increase their visibility and scholarship opportunities. Each Indiana high school can recognize up to four individual students.
