Welcome to IU High School
Welcome to Indiana University High School! Founded in 1925, IU High School has offered learners opportunities to expand their understandings of the world and earn a high school diploma at a distance for almost a century. Today, IU High School is innovating approaches to online learning for secondary schools. Drawing from the rich resources of Indiana University, IU High School offers a unique opportunity to engage in rigorous coursework designed in collaboration with some of the world's foremost thinkers and researchers of learning, curricular design, and online course development.
As a high school embedded in a public university setting, IU High School has the ability and responsibility to lead the innovation and implementation of online learning for secondary education. We take our charge seriously, and actively strive to develop, implement, and refine standards-based, responsive pedagogical approaches that help learners build and hone the strategies they need to interact in a networked world.
