The Anderson Preparatory Academy is a public charter school authorized by Ball State University; a military-style academy for girls and boys that focuses on a college preparatory curriculum of liberal arts and sciences. We are tuition-free and enrollment is open to any student in the state of Indiana. The cost to attend is the same as any public school.
Our motto is Where Excellence is Expected!
- Our elementary for grades K-4
- Students progress at their individual levels
- Our middle school for grades 5-8
- Requires participation in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program (grades 6-8)
- Our high school for grades 9-12
- Requires participation in the Air Force JROTC Program
Enrollment is open to any student who is a resident of Indiana*. Those interested in attending our school are asked to fill out an enrollment form. Enrollment forms are accepted throughout the year. However, class size is limited. If the number of new students wishing to attend exceeds the space available, a lottery is held, generally in February of each year, to fill those spots.
If you have additional questions, please contact Angie Shively at extension 5320.
