21st Century Charter School Students On Track To Break School College and Career Records

January 31, 2019

Dear Friends:

On this cold January day when the temperature outside is currently -3 degrees (no, that is not a typo) in Gary, Indiana (-20 degrees with windchill), things are heating up inside. I’ve just received a report showing that our 2019 graduates are on track to earn nearly 20 college credits each while in our high school. That’s the highest total of college and/or career certification credits earned by our students in our school’s history. We will have 18 students participating in Ivy Tech Community College’s graduation ceremony in May, too, with 10 receiving their Associate Degree and 8 others earning a career certification.

If those numbers don’t warm your heart, how about this? The school will be posting a college and career readiness rating of nearly 100%. This is a jump from our 80.5% rating this past year and towers over the statewide college and career readiness average rating of 67%.

Here’s one last statistic for you to consider. We have surpassed the tipping point–50% mark–of students taking college courses in our high school. We have 51% of our students–representing each grade level from 9th grade through 12th grade–taking college level courses today. Very cool!

Our students prove to all of us that when you truly empower them with real opportunity, they will exceed our wildest imaginations and blow away our traditional notions of what an appropriate education should be for a high school student.

Yes, it’s fun changing the world together!
Sincerely,

Kevin Teasley
