more than 2018.
Collectively, 51% of the class reports having been accepted to colleges

jobs or training at places such as: Siemens, Subaru, Valeo Automotive,
and the Indiana School of Phlebotomy.
“Hoosier and ISIN’s Class of 2019 has shown the determination in their
education that will serve them well in college, the workforce, and
beyond,” said Elizabeth Lamey, head of school for both Hoosier and ISIN.

about everything that lies ahead for them.”

and attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers.
