Indiana Academy Prom 2021

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

Greetings Indiana Academy Students and Families:

We are pleased to announce that the Indiana Academy will host Prom on Friday, May 14th from 7-11 p.m. in Ball Gym here on Ball State’s campus. This event will provide many of the elements of a typical Indiana Academy Prom including an open dance floor, music, photography, snacks, prom court, and more.

As part of the Academy’s ongoing response to COVID-19, there will be some notable changes to this year’s event including, but not limited to: COVID-testing, mask-wearing, room capacity limits, physical distancing considerations, and food service. Only current Indiana Academy students will be able to purchase tickets and attend this year’s Prom.

Now that the event is approved, we are working hard to nail down all of the details. You will be receiving more in-depth information on the schedule, ticket sales, event protocols, and school policies over the coming weeks.

Indiana Academy Spring Break Information

Thursday, March 4, 2021

Dear Indiana Academy Students and Families:

Spring Break is almost here!!! A message was sent last week with requirements all students must meet before returning to campus after the break.

The following requirements must be met before students can return to the residence hall on March 14.

  1. All students returning to campus, including non-residential students, must complete a COVID-19 self-certification form. This form will be similar to the one students completed before moving into the residence hall in August. This form can be accessed here:
    COVID-19 Self-Certification Form
  2. Students who travel outside of Indiana during spring break must submit a COVID-19 test before returning to the residence hall. Students can submit their test results through Canvas in the course titled “COVID-19 Test Result Submission – Spring 2021.” Additional instructions on submitting test results are here.

Additional quarantine restrictions are in place for students who travel out of the country during spring break. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., please contact me (see contact information in signature) ASAP to discuss these restrictions.

Students who remain in Indiana may get a COVID-19 test before returning to the Academy, but this is not a requirement.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. We will continue to communicate with our community any further pandemic issues or decisions that have implications for our students, faculty/staff, and families as they become available. For more information about COVID-19, please visit our website.
