Due to the current pandemic, Tippecanoe High School will be offering the PSAT/NMSQT again on January 26, 2021 to any 10th and 11th grade students. Many 10th and 11th grade students use this exam to get feedback on their strengths and areas of improvement in preparation for the SAT. In addition, students may qualify for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship program based on their PSAT/NMSQT scores taken during their junior year. The cost of the exam is $17. The test is a paper and pencil test and will take at least 3 hours and begin promptly at 7:40 am. The deadline for the PSAT/NMSQT registration will end December 3, 2020. No late registration materials will be accepted and students can only take this exam once in our calendar school year. The form is located outside of the counseling office or online.
AP Students - Exam registration ends next Friday! Please register through your College Board account. $95 per exam is due to Miss Everhart. Please see her or your AP teach with any questions.
Free ACT practice booklets are available outside the counseling office. Juniors, we recommend you grab one. You'll be taking the ACT here at school on February 23rd. This is a retired ACT test which makes for excellent practice!

Students at Tippecanoe have an opportunity to choose from a wide variety of co-curricular and extracurricular activities. We have a strong Academic Team that has been an Ohio and National standout for several years and compete throughout the Midwest. We have a local chapter of National Honor Society, a student senate, and clubs that cater to specific interests, such as Chess Club, Drama Club, Outdoor Club and more. Our theater productions are an outstanding showcase for our talented students.
Our athletic teams compete in the Miami Valley League. We offer ten varsity sports for men and women, plus cheerleading.
The high school also is affiliated with the Miami Valley Career Technology Center, which offers 47 vocational programs and Tech Prep courses of study as an alternative to the general and college preparatory education programs.

While we are proud of the attributes we can list on paper, we are even prouder of that intangible quality called spirit. You can feel it in the classrooms and hallways, see it on the playing fields, and hear it from our student musicians. Our students and our staff are proud of the tradition of excellence in Tipp City Schools. Spirit abounds at Tippecanoe High School and throughout the school district.
