Meet Mirica R.

Learn how Hoosier Academy at Indianapolis has helped lift her confidence—and her learning—to a new level.

What school achievement are you most proud of?

I am proud of all my achievements; I have improved academically. When I started the school, I was kind of behind but the school's program helped me get up to speed. I received a Certificate of Achievement, 7 Mindsets Certificate, and National Junior Honor Society Certificate.

What are your future plans?

My short-term plans are to continue to keep up my grades, stay in afterschool activities such as Robotics Club, become fluent in French, and graduate high school… with honors. My long-term plan is to become a missionary in a foreign land.

How has Hoosier Academies at Indianapolis prepared you for your future?

School was rough at first because I felt I was not smarter than the others. My teacher and staff are amazing, they gave me confidence, they wanted me to progress academically, and they were patient with me. My self-esteem boosted 100 percent when it comes to learning now and in the future.
