“A Small School with Big Chances”

21C represents a distinctive approach to bridging the high-school-to-college gap.
21C’s program is unlike most college-credit programs in three key ways
Between 2015 and 2018, 173 21C graduates earned a cumulative 1720 college credits

GEO’s 21st Century Charter School received a prestigious endorsement from the University of Indianapolis’s Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning (CELL) for our early college program. We are the 4th charter school in the state to earn this endorsement and one of only 42 schools in the entire state to earn it. CELL is the only organization in the state empowered by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to “endorse” early college high schools in the state. [read more]

Yesterday, Khaya and Abram received a special phone call from the President of Indiana Black Expo, Mrs. Tanya Mckinzie. They have been named Grand Marshalls for this year’s Circle City Classic Parade in Indy on Sept 24. Why? Because they earned their associate degrees already (Khaya is 13 and Abram is 16) and both have been accepted as “degree track” students at IUN and PNW and are expected to earn their bachelor’s before graduating from 21C. So, congrats to these two young men. FYI, I was told yesterday that we have 7 sophomores aiming to accomplish the same goal. More on that soon. For now, let’s cheer these students on. Yes! WE ARE GARY, INDIANA! Very proud of all our families and students. ... See MoreSee Less

Family and friends, I wanted to reach out and apologize directly for the transportation snafus you’ve experienced this year. We’ve had several issues that have shut down and/or caused delays in our shuttle service this year. Thieves stole our catalytic converters from two of our busses at the beginning of the year and we have not been able to find additional and reliable bus drivers. We have only one bus driver with a CDL license who can drive the big yellow bus, but we have two big yellow busses. Frustrating. While we are working to resolve this challenge, please know, it isn’t easy. We’ve had several applicants, but they have not been able to pass background and drug tests. We take the safety of our students—your children—very seriously. We can’t have just anybody drive the bus. So, I apologize for the snafus. I hope you understand. I also invite you to help us. If you know of drivers, please refer them to us. We offer competitive wages and flexible schedules. Even part time. Thanks again for your understanding and for the privilege to serve your children. ... See MoreSee Less
