Travel Forms

If your student is attending Prom, they must have a Travel Form on file. Please fill out this form and submit it to the Indiana Academy front desk by Monday, April 2nd. Please note that this year, the Travel Form may be faxed, mailed, or dropped off at the Indiana Academy front desk in person. All forms received or altered after April 2nd that cannot be verified or confirmed will NOT be enacted and will revert to previous permission. If no previous permission has been received and verified, the student’s Prom plans will revert to Academy Transportation only.
