I love East Allen University! Going to this school has really helped me prepare for college. The courses offered are challenging and very helpful. The teachers do an amazing job and help students with academics and life lessons. The main focus is academics, which is well appreciated. I wouldn't change a thing about this awesome school.

When it came down to choosing a high school I had three choices, but I never regret choosing East Allen University. Taking college courses in a high school setting gave us a close-knit support system, unlike those in college. The staff is unrivaled and were all carefully interviewed and hired as the best fits for the school. I feel much more prepared for college than I would've had I not attended EAU! This program was thoughtfully structured with the students' success and potential in mind. I'm very proud to have gone to EAU and thankful for the connections and friendships I made because of it. If anyone reading this is considering East Allen University, I would definitely suggest taking the leap because it is all worth it when you walk across that stage---both at Vincennes University for your Associate's degree, and then for your high school diploma.
What I like most about my school is the staff. Our principal is absolutely the best guy for the job, and he is always present at school functions and just in the hallways in general. Our teachers know their subject(s), and are very dedicated to our success as students. Because we are in an early college program, as students, we struggle with balancing high school and college expectations, so having supportive staff is incredibly important. I think we are offered more in-depth content and have better resources because many of our teachers could be professors but have decided to teach at the high school level instead of college, which means they have to love what they do. We are a smaller school, so you almost have to know everyone, and most everybody is included or has been invited to be included within the school. Of course, the biggest advantage is graduating with an associate’s degree from Vincennes University if you pass all the required courses, as well as from high school.
