Postsecondary Readiness Frequently Asked Questions

What is the IPS Promise?

IPS’ goal is that in every school, in every neighborhood—no matter the color of a student’s skin, their ZIP code, their income level, or what language they speak at home—IPS students will be: 

  • Thinkers: IPS students are no strangers to critical thinking, and are able to thoughtfully assess any situation or information they encounter.
  • Learners: They are inspired to transform themselves through learning, and have ambitions to improve the world around them.
  • Collaborators: IPS students are passionate about their beliefs, yet they are willing to listen to and accept different ideas or opinions. 
  • Change-Makers: They challenge the status quo by being conscious leaders set on resolving current and future world issues.

IPS students will be prepared to excel in life after high school, and to choose meaningful and fulfilling pathways in their lives. This starts with helping them discover the right pathway while they’re with us, and making sure they’re prepared for the journey ahead. IPS wants every child to know that they can achieve their dreams, learn at high levels, and graduate prepared to succeed. That’s the IPS Promise.

What is a Future Ready Pathway? 

A Future Ready Pathway encompasses all of the pathways available to IPS students, including CTE, Indiana College Core, International Baccalaureate (Diploma Programme and Career Programme), and associate degree paths. 

How can I get involved as an employer partner? 

IPS is proud to partner with several major organizations and companies to provide robust programs and immersive work-based learning experiences to students. Employers which are interested in partnering with the IPS Academy High Schools or would like to post student opportunities—such as part-time employment, summer camps or experiences, student internships and apprenticeships, can fill out this form to get connected.
