INDIANAPOLIS, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoosier Academies, a tuition-free public charter school authorized by Ball State University, has opened enrollment for the 2012-2013 school year at all three of its statewide programs: Hoosier Academies Indianapolis, a blended learning school (serving K-12; enrolling K-11); Hoosier Academies Muncie, a blended learning school (serving and enrolling K-8); Hoosier Academies Virtual School, a fully online school (serving K-11; enrolling K-10). Hoosier Academies uses the K¹²® curriculum to offer Indiana students in grades K-12 an exceptional learning experience that provides the tools students need to succeed – in school and beyond.
In the Indianapolis and Muncie programs, students attend a learning center where they enjoy face-to-face instruction two days a week with state-certified teachers, while the remainder of the weekly instruction is facilitated off-site with a responsible adult/parent referred to as a Learning Coach. The virtual program is a fully online program where learning can happen at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection can be found.
In the coming months, Hoosier Academies will host multiple free events in local communities across the state, including in-person and online information sessions and other education events for parents and children. These events will provide families an opportunity to learn about the program, speak with teachers and school staff and learn more about how so many children are succeeding with Hoosier Academies.
Families can find more information on these events or on how to enroll by visiting www.K12.com/ha.
Students who enroll in Hoosier Academies receive the award-winning academic program developed by K12 Inc., which includes engaging web-based lessons along with instructional materials – books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and resources – which are shipped directly to each student's home. Hoosier Academies provides courses in English/language arts, math, science, history, and physical education/wellness for students in grades K-8, while the high school program offers students a catalog of more than 150 core, elective, AP and world language courses.
