IOA Parent

Indiana Online has been the blessing we had needed for so long. I can’t tell you how much he loves it and how much we love seeing him get so much from it. It truly is a perfect fit!

IOA Parent

I cried tears of joy [after our case conference] because of all the positive and kind comments about my son. He really enjoys your program and adores his teachers and they are great with him. There aren’t enough words to express the indescribable feelings I experienced after I processed everything. We love IOA and I am excited for my other son to be a part of your amazing program!
