Students at the Indiana Academy experience an innovative educational program that is consistently ranked one of the best schools in Indiana and the nation! Every year our students are awarded millions of dollars in scholarships and financial assistance from the best colleges and universities in our state and around the country including Ivy League schools. Whether you are living in our residence hall or commuting to campus, you will participate in a world-class educational environment with many opportunities for new experiences and growth.

Academy classes are not your average high school classes — you’ll find our courses to be challenging, innovative, and customized to meet the needs of high achieving students. Our collegiate level curriculum is taught by nationally ranked faculty who are professionals in their fields, and all of our faculty have a minimum of a master’s degree — about a third also have their doctorates. Academy courses move quickly and cover topics in depth ensuring that Academy students are engaged and not bored with the material. Plus, our students typically earn a significant number of college credits! Even though all of our courses are collegiate level, dual credit, or AP, our students also have the opportunity to enroll in a variety of higher level courses at Ball State University for college credit. And all of our students are working toward earning a Core 40 with Honors diploma.

At the Indiana Academy, education doesn’t end in the classroom. Our students develop important skills for lifelong learning and preparation for navigating a college campus — where to find things, how to advocate for themselves, time management, study skills, living with a roommate, and so much more. If you’re worried the Academy sounds like all work and no play — we know how to have fun here too! Academy students participate in IHSAA sports, intramural athletics, more than 50 student clubs, and numerous student life and extracurricular activities happening outside of the classroom every day!
