You can make a difference

The Indiana School for the Deaf is a fully accredited school for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from ECE through high school. The first state-sponsored school in America that offered free education to any Deaf student. From that beginning, Indiana School for the Deaf has developed into one of the leading Deaf Schools in the nation, rich in heritage yet always striving to meet the challenges ahead. 

Bilingual Deaf Education provides language acquisition and facilitates proficiency in two languages, American Sign Language and English. By providing an enriched academically and socially learning environment, our Deaf and Hard of Hearing students develop a sense of identity within the Deaf community.


We are very proud of Indiana School for the Deaf and its environment, facilities, expertise, and especially of our pupils and their achievements.
