IN Cyber is the newest online free public education option for K-12 students across Indiana. Indiana Cyber offers students innovative and individualized educational opportunities, designed to enable every student to succeed.
IN Cyber provides student-centered services, high quality instruction, and leading technology to provide students with academic opportunities that go beyond the confines and curriculum found in most traditional K-12 settings.
Every student is assigned a Student Learning Advocate (SLA) who works with the student and family as mentor, learning coach, and guidance counselor. The SLA maintains a minimum of weekly contact with the student and family, assists in choosing appropriate courses, monitors attendance and academic progress, and is available to meet with the student and family at one of the school's Student Support Centers, located at Trine University regional campuses in Schererville and Avon.
High school students enrolled in IN Cyber have the opportunity to earn college credits through Trine University's Middle College program. This dual enrollment program – provided by IN Cyber at no cost to families – allows students to take online college courses from Trine that count for both high school graduation requirements and college credit.
IN Cyber features the nation's leading online curriculum, Lincoln Interactive. Used by thousands of students worldwide, Lincoln Interactive offers more than 250 courses, allowing students to customize their education based on their needs and academic goals.
Developed by and provided through the National Network of Digital Schools, Lincoln Interactive curriculum features the STEM-focused Cutting Edge Science courses, extensive world languages and elective courses, and Little Lincoln, the nation's leading online elementary curriculum.
