Choose Us

Education opens doors, ignites the mind, and creates opportunity. It forms the basis for a solid foundation for our youth as they forge their future. We understand that choosing where to educate your children is not a decision to take lightly. We are parents and caregivers just like you, and we are here to help guide you through this important process. On this page we share just a few reasons why JCSC is an excellent choice in education.

We Have What You Want

  • Highly qualified teachers. Our educators meet all state requirements for the designation of “highly qualified.” And just as importantly, we take care to hire faculty who share our passion for education. It is this passion and drive that makes all the difference.
  • Relevant curriculum. Our curriculum is intentionally mapped to ensure adherence to the Indiana Academic Standards in all core subjects. Students may participate in elective courses suited to their unique interests.
  • Safe, well-maintained facilities. Safety is always our priority. Our facilities are secure, safe, and clean.
  • Community involvement. Our people are our greatest resource. We enjoy the benefits of a supportive community and many business partners. Working together, we are better.
  • Dual Enrollment. Jennings County High School offers students numerous dual credit offerings during their high school experience. These dual credit agreements are through Indiana University, Ivy Tech Community College, and Vincennes University. Students also have the ability to earn the Indiana College Core (ICC) in its entirety at Jennings County High School. The ICC allows students to graduate from JCHS as college sophomores and the ability to transfer earned college credit hours to any public university in Indiana. The ICC and dual credit offerings at Jennings County High School have saved families and students thousands of dollars upon entering college. You can find more detailed information about specific dual credit offerings and the ICC in our JCHS Curriculum Guide.
