Get to Know Our School

We provide motivated 11th and 12th grade students with the opportunity to participate in an accelerated high school program that combines face-to-face learning and online learning. Students will have the opportunity to work at their own pace, allowing them to make up credits they may not have received in previous high school settings. We are here to work with you to design an academic program that meets your needs and prepares you for life beyond high school.

Our school is open to all 11th and 12th grade students. Ideal candidates are highly motivated students looking for flexible credit recovery options or enjoy a more autonomous learning schedule.

Please fill out our brief intake application to get started!

Students will be provided with the IPS Code of Conduct.  All rules for student conduct are outlined in that document.  In addition, students at Simon Youth Academy at Circle Centre will be expected to follow the Circle Centre Mall regulations and abide by our Academy Full Value Contract, which will be developed and revised yearly by our students.

Academy students will utilize public transportation and will be provided with monthly IndyGo bus passes.  We will be happy to assist you in figuring out your route. While utilizing IndyGo facilities, students are subject to the rules and regulations of IndyGo.
