Finding the right school for your child often takes time, effort, lots of research and maybe even a little help. 

While Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) works daily to assist families in making informed educational choices, the district also hosts its annual Showcase of Schools, an education and enrollment fair that offers access to all 70-plus IPS schools and programs in one location.

The 5th annual Showcase of Schools will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Indiana State Museum, 650 W. Washington St. The event takes over all three floors inside the museum.

In addition to being able to talk to school representatives about academic programming, extracurricular activities and school resources, families will also have an opportunity to engage with community organizations and enroll on-site in the districtwide Choice Application Lottery for a chance to get into IPS’ coveted Choice programs for the 2019-20 school year.

Families will also receive free admission and parking, as well as free food from the Bus Stop Cafe, the district’s food bus! And so much more.

“Showcase is a family’s best opportunity to experience all of what IPS has to offer in one location and at one time,” said Patrick Herrel, director of Enrollment and Options. “Rather than traveling from school to school over multiple days to explore IPS’ many programs and offerings, families can meet with leaders, learn about programs, and get on-site support for their students’ unique needs.”
