We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to you as you consider enrolling at Tippecanoe Online Academy. Our dedicated team is committed to providing an exceptional online learning experience that empowers students to excel academically while embracing a flexible and supportive educational environment.
At Tippecanoe Online Academy, we believe in fostering a love for learning and tailoring education to meet the unique needs of each student. Whether you're seeking a more flexible schedule, personalized curriculum, or a safe and nurturing learning environment, we're here to help your child reach their full potential.
Before you start on your application to the Tippecanoe Online Academy, take a look at the enrollment process.
Self-discipline and time management. With no fixed class schedule or physical presence to hold them accountable, students must exhibit strong self-regulation skills. They need to create and adhere to personal study routines, set realistic goals, and maintain focus amidst potential distractions.
Self-motivation is key, as they must take responsibility for their learning journey and stay engaged without external prompts. Adaptability is also essential, as online learning platforms and technologies may vary, requiring students to quickly acclimate to new interfaces and tools.
Effective communication skills are vital for online learners. They must be able to articulate their thoughts and questions clearly through written communication, as it becomes the primary mode of interaction. Active participation in virtual discussions and seeking clarification when needed are critical to foster meaningful learning experiences.
A growth mindset is invaluable in an online learning environment. Students should embrace challenges and setbacks as opportunities for growth rather than as obstacles. The ability to persevere, seek help when necessary, and maintain a positive attitude enhances their overall learning experience.

At the Tippecanoe Online Academy, our focus will be on providing a strong foundation for academic success, aligning our course offerings with the Indiana Core 40 diploma track. We understand the importance of preparing our students for their future endeavors, whether it be higher education, the workforce, or any other pursuit they choose.
With Graduation Pathways, students are able to individualize their graduation requirements to align to their postsecondary goal of Enrollment, Employment, or Enlistment leading to service. No longer must all students fit into the same academic mold, but rather, they can choose the high school options that best meet their postsecondary goals and aspirations.
Beginning with the graduating class of 2023, Indiana high school students must satisfy all three of the following Graduation Requirements:
- Earn credits necessary for a High School Diploma;
- Learn and Demonstrate Employability Skills; AND
- Demonstrate Postsecondary-Ready Competencies.
Check out our Graduation Pathways page for more information on specific courses and CTE Pathways available to our students.
✅Student's Proof of Age
If you need a copy of your child's birth certificate, you can order it online through the Indiana State Department of Health website. Please visit the Vital Records webpage for more information.
✅Proof of Residency
The state of Indiana requires school districts to collect proof of Indiana residency documentation for all students. To comply, we are asking you to submit documentation that shows your name and current address (parent/guardian). Documentation must show the date, parent/guardian name and an address.

All students who have previously attended public school, private school, or homeschool are eligible to enroll and will be requested to submit academic records for placement.
