About

The Indiana Non-Public Education Association (INPEA) is an association representing non-public schools in Indiana. More than 400 schools, 96,000 students and 7,700 teachers, pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade, are part of the organization.

INPEA formed in 1974 when 12 representatives from non-public schools met and agreed to form an association to serve the interest of non-public school education in Indiana. Educators at the inaugural meeting represented Christian, Lutheran, Catholic and independent non-public schools.

Through our commitment to quality education, we serve to unify our schools while respecting their diversity. We provide a framework for communication and cooperation among non-public schools in Indiana, preschool through secondary. In addition, INPEA strives to maintain productive relationships with the Indiana State Department of Education, the federal government and other agencies that impact quality education.
