Message from the Headmaster

Our mission is to keep learning first and thus prepare all students to meet the challenges of the future.

Indianola Academy’s mission statement is refreshing in its directness and simplicity. Since 1965, Indianola Academy has served families and students in Sunflower County and beyond. Its mission and philosophy have created a college-preparatory school that has now produced generations of students who are scholars, athletes, and artists.  The school’s talented, well-prepared graduates continue to make contributions to communities near and far. Beyond the challenging curriculum and competitive athletics, Indianola Academy continues to educate and to nurture and to mentor its students. The school’s talented faculty (including a number of accomplished veteran teachers) and committed—dedicated—administrative team assure that there is right here in Indianola one of Mississippi’s best and well-established independent schools. I invite you and your family to schedule a visit to our campus, where you may well find a very bright future!
