This year ISIN will graduate over 105 students. Approximately 7 students will graduate with a cumulative GPA above 3.5 and nearly $650,000 worth of college scholarships have reportedly been awarded to the Class of 2021.

Collectively, the graduating class reports it has been accepted to colleges and universities across Indiana and beyond, including Xavier, Indiana State, Anderson, Indiana University, Wabash, Hanover, Franklin, Ivy tech and Ball State.

ISIN will feature Hunter Faulkner as the Valedictorian. Hunter has received many offers with full rides but has not yet committed to a school at this time. The Salutatorian is Gabriel Lewis for ISIN. Gabriel plans to attend Ivy Tech in the fall respectively. The keynote speakers will be Kevin P. Chavous, Stride’s President, Academic Policy and External Affairs, Dr. Shaun McAlmont, Stride’s President of Career Learning Solutions, and Indiana Governor, Eric J. Holcomb.

Prior to the pandemic, students enrolled in virtual school for a number of reasons—some were looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others were looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting.

ISIN students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects and a host of electives and attend live virtual classes taught by state-certified teachers.

Details of the graduation ceremonies are as follows:
