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]

MLK set an example for all of us. Did you know he enrolled in Morehouse at age 15 when he was a junior in high school? Graduated with his bachelor’s at age 19? I rarely hear people share this important info. Our students follow in his footsteps, too. In fact, many earn associates by age 16, 17 and 18 before they graduate from 21C. Super proud of our students. ... See MoreSee Less

There is a terrific column by Jerry Davich in today’s NW Indiana Times. I’m sure it resonates with many of us. It does with me. So, I thought I’d share it here because it stands as a reminder of why 21C exists. We seek to be different. We love each and every child and strive to make every minute of our time together meaningful. I know there are still times when students doodle and engage in shenanigans, but I believe those times are far less than the time our students are engaged in meaningful work. This is very evident when you look at our high school students engaged at the college and career level. I also know, our students are engaged in many activities and sports, including robotics to team dance, cheerleading, basketball, volleyball, cross country, baseball and track. Are we perfect? Far from it. But I hope every family knows we are trying our very best to serve up the best opportunities and create great memories that last a lifetime. Here are just a few pics representing our efforts. And here is Jerry’s article.
