Our most recent graduates; December 2018

News -
Achieve Academy now offers an in-house diploma program. This program offers an added layer of access to education for our students. Our school is registered with the Indiana Dept. of Education and is recognized as a school. When it is not possible for students to graduate in their home school they can attend classes at Achieve to earn a diploma. After graduation, we assist students in pursuing post-secondary education and job placement. 


Our mission is put into action primarily through three programs: 

Achieve Academy-
Our focus for each student is based on the students’ individual needs. At Achieve we strive to develop within each student, a passion for learning and a commitment to excellence. Many of our students are enrolled in a program to recover credits from their high school, while others are taking full-time online classes. Achieve Academy allows students the opportunity to excel academically, socially and emotionally at their own pace. Our facility has a computer lab with internet access where students can access Khan Academy and PLATO Learning systems. PLATO Learning allows our students to recover credits through their enrolled high school. After graduation, we assist students in pursuing post-secondary education and job placement. When it is not possible for students to graduate with their class in their home school they can attend classes at Achieve Indy to earn a general education diploma. 

After-School & Food-
Research indicate that the hours directly follow school dismal are the most dangerous hours of the day for our youth. They are at a higher risk for being involved in or being the victim of a crime. Our after-school program offers students a safe place with adult supervision in the hours of the day when students are most vulnerable. We have also partnered with Second Helpings to fight hunger in Indianapolis. Each day we are open we serve a hot meal to our students. 


Team Achieve Boxing & Judo -
Our sports programs teach students life skills that transfer from the gym to the classroom and to the job site.  Learning life skills through sports is not just an imaginary concept but many scholarly articles and books have been written that give credibility to these claims; and the real proof is in the changed lives of our students. Our USA Boxing program has been very successful and continues to grow. We have trained over 350 state champions to date; including Indiana Silver Gloves, Indiana Junior Olympics and Indiana Golden Gloves. Our USA Judo program started in late 2016 and we have 30 students enrolled and actively advancing in earning their Judo belts and tips. All participants of Team Achieve are working on academic, personal and athletic goals. Students who are a part of Team Achieve, are required to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 and also maintain good academic attendance and cannot partake in violence of any form. As we teach our athletes boxing and judo we are teaching them the value of perseverance, hard work and intrinsic motivation. Parents and teachers of Team Achieve students report significant improvement in attendance, grades, attitude and discipline.
