Frequently Asked Questions
IPA offers After School Enrichment (ASE) courses for students in Grades K-5 during the Fall and Winter/Spring. ASE is a great opportunity for students to learn a new skill, dive deeper into an area of interest, or challenged themselves by exploring a subject outside their comfort zone. Students can select one or more courses to create a schedule that suits their needs and fulfills their passion for learning.
Visit the After School Enrichment page to see the course listing and to download the registration form.
IPA students in Grades 7-12 are eligible to participate on IPA athletics teams at the intermediate, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Registration for sport teams opens at the beginning of each sport season. There is a one time registration fee, and all registration is completed online through RegisterMyAthlete.com.

For Grade 6-12 students, all required text books can be purchased through our official bookstore, MBS Direct. Books are available to order starting in early June of each year.
A list of required school supplies for each grade level is sent out during the summer in our Back to School Packet. Each year, we partner with Ready for Success, who will purchase, label, and deliver your child's school supplies for a fee. IPA receives a percentage of the proceeds as a donation. More information about this service is sent out via email before the start of the school year.
Uniforms must be worn unless a student is given permission by administration to be out of uniform (i.e., free
