Enroll for 2020-21 | Options-Indiana Flyer (PDF)

→ With a 15-person Distance Education team, Options-Indiana is able to cover the entire state and provide one-on-one instruction to every student in the program. The Options motto, “Belong. Believe. Achieve.,” is the order in which a student must grow to be successful. Each student is paired with a certified teacher to help set and monitor weekly progress goals. In order to put students in the best position to reach their academic goals, they are able to choose how many courses they work on at a time.

→ Through a personalized approach, each teacher on the Options-Indiana team is able to develop relationships with their students in order to maximize their potential. While teachers do not see the students on a daily basis like in a traditional classroom, our team takes pride in investing in each individual student and as a result, they make themselves available around the clock.

→ Options-Indiana offers a different approach to learning that is not available at other brick and mortar schools or online virtual schools. We offer rolling enrollment and semesters, which means that every student can start and finish their courses at any time during the year. This provides them with the ability to earn credits at a faster rate. The curriculum is web-based and can be accessed any time of day, any day of the week. While there is no set time on how quickly a student can complete a course, one course requires between 20 and 40 hours of work, on average.

→ The Options-Indiana program helps provide a unique opportunity for students in search of an academic environment where they can ‘Belong, Believe and Achieve.’ Students enroll in Options-Indiana for any combination of reasons – some of which are health issues, schedule constraints or personal preference.
