As in the case of The French Academy, the definite article "the" is part of the name of The Indiana Academy. The Academy's three initials (TIA) form the basis of the symbol that has been humanized with a face and out-stretched arms. Each of the images medallion represents the following:

Dove -- the human spirit and religion
Lyre -- music
Male profile (bust of Benjamin Harrison) -- history, the importance of his family in the annals of Indiana
Female profile (Mona Lisa) -- painting and the graphic arts
Compass -- engineeringMortar and pestle -- science
Monument -- architecture, patriotism, and love of Indiana
Open book -- education

Radiant face -- The Academy's motto ("Eudaemonia")
