Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics & Humanities Reviews

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.
Review Your School
I love the Indiana Academy Science, Mathematics, and Humanities teachers, academics, and opportunities. Most of the teachers are amazing. I learn new and useful information everyday in class. The teachers also make sure to challenge you and stimulate your brain. The academics are fantastic. The Academy has a lot of classes you wouldn't find in a typical high school. They offer linguistics, seven foreign languages, forensic science, and more. One of the great opportunities provided by the Academy is to experience life on a college campus. The students also get to have a two week period at the end of the school year called May Term. During this time, students can either participate in internships, trips (China, Germany, Japan, New York, etc.), or take a fun and educational class.
I love the Academy! It's a great place to live and learn. Before I came here, I did very well in school, but lacked friends and motivation. Now I'm taking classes that engage me and I've made some of my most important friends. The academics are phenomenal and living on campus is the ultimate college prep experience. Because the school doesn't have class ranks, the student culture is less competitive and more encouraging than my old school. The facilities really need to be updated, but since the funding for those updates comes from the state, I don't really blame the Academy for the quality they're in. Students can compete in sports through Burris Laboratory School and student run clubs are very popular. Security is really tight and students living on campus have daily check ins with our Student Life Counselor to ensure that no one is missing. All in all, the Indiana Academy is a great school and I would encourage anyone to apply!
