About Christel House Academy

Christel House Academy is a network of learning centers supported by Christel House International. The centers, authorized by the Mayor of Indianapolis, operate as public charter schools on multiple campus locations.

Christel House Academy South opened in 2002 on the Southside of Indianapolis and serves more than 600 low income students in grades K–12. It was Indiana’s first charter school to receive the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform’s designation as a School to Watch, and was recognized nationally as one of 10 MetLife Foundation–NASSP “Breakthrough Schools.” Christel House Academy West opened in August 2014 on the near Westside of Indianapolis, and serves students in grades K–2. Each year the school will add one new grade level.

Christel House DORS South, an adult high school, is located on the Christel House South campus. Christel House DORS West, the Academy’s second adult high school, is located on the Christel House West campus.

“I got pregnant at 16 and dropped out my senior year. When I came into the program I was so negative about life, but the teachers and staff helped me push myself. My daughter is 5 now and proud that I conquered the biggest challenge in my life and graduated.”
