Hoosier Academy at Indianapolis (Hoosier), a blended online public charter school, is inviting all students to stop “walking up hill both ways in a snowstorm” to get to class.

Authorized by Ball State University, Hoosier is available tuition-free to students in grades K-8 and is now accepting enrollments for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.

Hoosier’s blended program, where students attend a Learning Center two days per week and work from home virtually in required class-connect sessions the other three, offers a personalized approach to learning, delivering rich, engaging curriculum designed to assist students who seek alternative pathways to education. Students receive support and resources needed to reach their academic goals, and access programs and courses designed to help with career readiness.

“Hoosier provides an educational experience like no other school in the state of Indiana,” says Head of School ­­­­­Janice Silver. “Our students thrive in this kind of learning environment, and they leave Hoosier confident they can handle whatever life throws at them next.”

All Hoosier students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, language arts, and history. Hoosier also offers student clubs, field trips, social outings, and other activities to foster a sense of school community, including an in-person high school graduation ceremony in the spring.

Virtual classes are taught by Indiana-licensed teachers who communicate with students and families via phone, chat, and email in addition to the required class-connect sessions.

Hoosier is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. Families are encouraged to attend an in-person information session hosted by the school. For more information on how to enroll, and for a schedule of upcoming events, visit
