This video, created by Irvington Preparatory Academy Class of 2019 senior Abby Goebel, highlights the IPA 2018-2019 school year in athletics. It features all IPA athletic programs. Abby prepared the video for the annual IPA Athletics Sports Banquet.

When Irvington Community Schools (ICS) was notified by the Indiana Charter School Network (ICSN) about its video competition celebrating National School Choice Week (January 20-26), we turned to one of our resident filmmakers, IPA senior Abby Goebel, to do the work. And do she did!

Abby and two other Indiana students were recognized by the ICSN and its partner organization, the Institute for Quality Education(IQE), at a breakfast on Wednesday, January 23. The event, held at the Conrad Indianapolis, included state legislators, school administrators, students, and parents. This proved to be an ideal opportunity to interact with some of the state’s key decision makers, some of whom serve on the senate and house education committees, and talk about upcoming legislation and underscore charter schools’ greatest need: equitable school funding. Abby was also presented a check for $1,000 by IQE. What’s more, she had her photo taken with Gov. Eric Holcomb.

Former IPA students talk about how their high school experience as IPA Ravens prepared them for success in college.
