(Indianapolis, IN) - Virtual private schools are now a thing in Indiana. This week the State Board of Education approved two online private schools. FaithPrep is a religious school, and GEO Focus Academy is focused on college prep. Both schools are K-12. FaithPrep is an online branch of Columbus Christian School. GEO has physical campuses in Indianapolis and Gary.
It’s the first time private online schools have been accredited in Indiana. The two virtual academies will participate in the state voucher program, allowing eligible families to receive publicly-funded scholarships to cover the cost of tuition. The voucher program was recently expanded by the state legislature.
