Indiana Online Academy

full-time virtual solution for Indiana districts

School districts are losing students every year to full-time virtual public or charter schools, thus losing the student ADM. The Indiana Online Academy (IOA) provides a solution that could greatly benefit Indiana districts allowing them to keep all of their students, meet individual needs, and remove the burden of running their own virtual program.

The highlights:
  • Flexible, open enrollment
  • District maintains full student ADM funding, but uses a portion to pay for student IOA cost
  • Students may continue co-curricular and extracurricular activities if permitted by the district
  • Traditional home school students have an option to stay district students, but receive a virtual education
  • Middle (7-8) and High School (9-12) accredited curriculum offering AP and Dual Credit options
