About Us

Indigo Research is a group of scholars and educators brought together by the common goal of making research accessible to all. That’s why we decided to establish an education company with the potential to both inspire and transform the academic journeys of generations of students, by offering online research opportunities for high school students.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is the foundation of ethical research and the bedrock of our work at Indigo Research. All Indigo Research students, parents, mentors, and team members are required to sign our Academic Honor Code, in keeping with standard practice at colleges, universities, and legitimate research institutions. Academic Honor Codes are designed to protect mentor's and student’s academic integrity and to ensure that Indigo Research continues to operate according to the highest standards of academic ethics and excellence.

In keeping with our rigorous academic integrity standards, Indigo Research cannot guarantee publication or student outcomes. It is our mission to support our students’ intellectual growth, both in their chosen fields and in their research methods.
