My daughter is a junior and I am so pleased that she found the academy. She was attending a large public high school taking ap classes and was bored to death with the academics and the social atmosphere. The academy has been a positive life changing event.

Coming from a tiny town with very few educational resources, the Indiana Academy provided me with opportunities I otherwise never would have had access to. My only concern is that the state of Indiana only provides public education of this quality at one institution, thus making top-notch secondary education otherwise only available to those with the resources to send their children to private schools.

I am a parent to a current student. This school has been a Godsend, wonderful in every way. A super way for highly gifted teens to have their needs met :)
