Irvington Preparatory Academy was established in 2006. Originally known as Irvington Community High School, our secondary learning institution changed its name in 2009, relocating to the former Children's Guardian Home in 2010.
Irvington Prep has graduated 117 students in its first two graduating classes (2010 and 2011, respectively). They have matriculated to more than 20 colleges and universities, including Indiana University, Purdue University, Butler University, Marian University, and St. Mary-of-The Woods College. In 2011, IPA graduates earned $1 million in academic college assistance.
Our curriculum is rigorous and demanding. All students take at least one Advanced Placement course (U.S. History) during their career at IPA. Our AP course offerings include Government, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Psychology, English, and Studio Art (2D Design). Students at Irvington Preparatory Academy are strongly encouraged to pursue the Indiana Academic Honors Diploma in order to best prepare for post-secondary study.
IPA's teacher-student ratio averages one teacher to 13 students per class overall, and one teacher to 23 students in core class offerings. Our ability to give students a personalized approach to learning is one of the central strengths of Irvington Community Schools.
