Inspire Academy’s admissions practices will comply with State law and applicable Federal laws, including Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Federal civil rights laws, including, but not limited to: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. As a public charter school, admission will not be limited on the basis of intellectual ability, athletic ability, disability, gender identity, race, creed, national origin, religion, or ancestry, or any other criteria that would be unlawful. As per IC 20-24-5-5, the schools will enroll any eligible student who submits a timely enrollment application except when the number of applications for a grade level exceeds capacity. If the schools receive a greater number of applications than there are spaces for students, each timely applicant will be given an equal chance of admission via a lottery process.
Enrollment at Inspire Academy will be open to all Indiana residents. Guaranteed space will be given to students enrolled and admitted the prior year whose families complete the Returning Student Confirmation Form by the lottery deadline, and priority in the lottery will be given to siblings of students already enrolled. The school will hold an open enrollment period for a specific three-week period in February. If fully completed applications exceed the number of spaces available, the last business day of the enrollment period will be the deadline for applications to be drawn by a random selection lottery process.
