“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]

I had a really great discussion with our seniors today. We talked about how to improve the school from top to bottom. We need more teachers, more direct instruction, less computer time, more sports and better balance in spending on all sports (not just basketball), more enrichments like band and choir and theater, more recognition of career certification students and college students who earn 3-6 credits (or any amount of credits), pep rallies to celebrate the achievements of all our students, more access to IUN and PNW, the ability to “paint the parking lot,” the ability to leave campus for lunch, and more field trips. I loved hearing all of these suggestions and I know there were more. This is just a summary. We will get on this and get some answers. I do appreciate the comments and concerns of all our students. We are here to serve you. And our Seniors are great advocates! Thank you Seniors!William Murry, Phillip Derry, Destiny Feagin, Shatara Mables, Kayla Bryson, O’niya Lyles, Dantaye Warr, Kara Shotwell, Sanaaiya West, April Session, and K’Liyana Smith. ...
