Frequently Asked Questions
Liberty Academy will be launching in the fall of 2023. As we approach opening, many of the specific details about our school will become more clearly defined. Until then, we created this page to answer many of the questions we are asked most often.
Where will Liberty Academy be located?
At this time we are exploring our options for a facility in Columbus, IN. We expect to be located within a 20 minute drive of almost any address in the county.
What will tuition cost?
In order for Liberty Academy to accessible to all families in Columbus, we have a tuition model based on family size and Adjusted Gross Income. For more details and to complete a worksheet with an estimated family investment, click here.
What grades will you serve?
Our ultimate goal is to offer full K-12 classical schooling. However, in order to cultivate the culture necessary for a proper classical education, we anticipate opening with grades K-7.
What extra curriculars (clubs, sports, etc.) do you plan to offer?
Classical education concerns itself with the education of the whole child: mind, body and spirit. Physical education and the friendships that are cultivated through team sport are essential components in a well-rounded classical student. We are still finalizing our selection of activities, but anticipate offering sports such as cross country and basketball, among others, when we launch in the fall of 2023. We also plan to offer a unique selection of clubs that will be sponsored and supported by the parents and faculty of Liberty Academy.
Will Liberty Academy be accredited?
Yes. We will be accredited through the Indiana Department of Education.
How will Liberty Academy be held accountable with the state of Indiana?
Although Liberty Academy is not a test prep school and prefers to focus on its curriculum, we will be held to the state's accountability system as part of our accreditation. Students will be assessed using the same systems that all other CHOICE schools use as part of that process.
Is Liberty Academy religiously or politically affiliated?
No. Liberty Academy is a private, non-parochial school. We receive no federal funding and desire to remain as autonomous as possible in order to best serve the students and families we partner with. We do, however, hold a clear set of values and pursue a defined set of virtues that all families agree to uphold and pursue as part of a partnership with Liberty Academy.
Does Liberty Academy offer transportation?
No. Once we have identified our facility we will have further details about student drop off and pick up.
Does Liberty Academy have a uniform?
Yes. The details of our uniforms will be available when enrollment information sessions begin.
