Wildcat Academy

A Christ-centered education is at the core of the Indiana Wesleyan University mission. IWU’s Wildcat Academy was born out of this mission and offers high school students the opportunity to experience and prepare for college prior to actually enrolling. Through Wildcat Academy’s various programs and opportunities, high school students can earn college credit through IWU’s dual credit courses, get hands-on experience in their area of interest through Wildcat Summer Academy and even earn a scholarship to IWU!

We believe you shouldn’t have to wait to begin your college career. Through Wildcat Academy you can get a jump-start that will prepare you for a successful college experience and an even more successful career.
