Welcome to Irvington Preparatory Academy

As a community-based school, Irvington Prep relies upon parental involvement in many ways. Along with partnering with parents in stewarding their children's educational development, IPA encourages parents to work with us as volunteers.  We have many volunteer opportunities from which to choose, including:


Professional visit with us on Career Day and share their valuable workplace wisdom with teenagers who are just cutting their teeth on the world of work. For more information, contact the IPA Director of Operations and Instruction.


Our front office can use help with copying, mailings, filing, and lamination.


The ICS music teachers need assistance with choral concerts and variety shows, including:

  • Monitoring students waiting for auditions 
  • Constructing backdrops and/or sets for the variety show (winter event)
  • Running spotlights during the variety show
  • Running sound equipment for the variety show and/or choral concerts
  • Playing piano at choral concerts
  • Setting up and breaking down tables and chairs at choral concerts and the variety show

We also could use chaperones for dances throughout the year.

Grounds Beautification

In order to maintain and build upon our school's work with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc., we have an ongoing need for planting, weeding, mulching, and generally tidying up the school grounds.
