The Indiana Academy has been one of the best decisions of my life. However, the administration is extremely corrupt, we, the students, are nothing but dollar signs. The administration threatens teachers with pay cuts when they don't agree with a new rule, they tolerate bullying and racism, and they put their own paycheck in front of us students and teachers. The Academy administration condones racism, bluntly honest. But, the Academy community does not. Students have created petitions for a stronger rule against racism, clubs have met together to address the problems, and even parents are getting involved. The administration is the only sour point of this school. The faculty and staff are excellent and truly care about students. I strongly recommend this school to everyone. It challenges your academic ability and your humanity.

My mom has dubbed The Indiana Academy "college on training wheels"-a fond and truthful nickname. Students live in dorms on Ball State campus, giving them a feel of what living away from home is like. All teachers have at least a master's degree, if not a PHD, in their chosen field. Their weekly office hours are accessible to students, allowing them to better know the friendly and resourceful staff. While going there was scary at first, I'm glad that I took the risk to go there. Not only did it deepen my education and better prepare me for college, but I also made lifelong friends and better learned about myself as a person.
Indiana Academy does an excellent job of preparing its students for higher education. A rigorous curriculum, highly qualified faculty, and diverse student body all contribute to an outstanding academic experience. Many AP and dual credit courses are available to students, and these courses are arguably more difficult than even their Ball State equivalents–that is, Academy students are studying at a higher level them some college students. Additionally, most of Academy instructors have either a master's or doctorate degree, and they sincerely care about the success of every one of their students. Finally, students come all over Indiana, bringing with them unique backgrounds, identities, and worldviews. I have had a wonderful two years here, and I am proud to graduate from such an esteemed institution.
