Indiana SBOE Accreditation
The Independence Academy is accredited by the Indiana State Board of Education (SBOE). The SBOE accredits both public and non-public schools that choose to seek accreditation under law. IA offers a curriculum that is in line with state standards, and also participates in state-required standardized testing with accommodations for our students.
In 2018, IA became received provisional accreditation through ISACS, the Independent Schools Association of the Central States. ISACS leads schools to pursue exemplary independent education.
Indiana is committed to providing all children access to quality educational opportunities. Indiana's Choice Scholarship Program, commonly referred to as the voucher program, (authorized under IC 20-51-1 and IC 20-51-4) provides scholarships to eligible Indiana students to offset tuition costs at participating schools. Students must satisfy both household income requirements and student eligibility criteria to qualify.
The Choice Scholarship Program provides State funding to qualifying students that is used to help offset tuition costs at participating Choice schools. Students qualify based on student eligibility criteria. The Independence Academy is a 2019-2020 Participating Choice School.
