About Us

At 21st Century Charter School at Gary, all roads lead to college – and beyond.

21st Century Charter School at Gary is a free public charter school and is committed to ensure that all students show growth in character, academics, life skills, the arts, and wellness using teaching skills tailored to meet the needs of each student.

We are one of a very few schools offering a Middle College program, which allows our qualifying high school students to take real college courses for real college credit – and it’s free of charge to our students and their families.

Our Middle College program is only one reason to attend 21st Century Charter School at Gary.

Our curriculum and our teaching methods are designed to let your child excel as fast as their ability allows. This kind of competency-based approach lets kids of higher ability progress past students their same age. It also permits students to regroup, master material not mastered at a more restrictive school, then, with new-found confidence, race toward their academic potential.

Traditional public schools, parochial schools and other tuition-based private schools serve many children very well, but 21st Century Charter School at Gary is here to provide a choice.

We offer a new way to excel.

For each and every child that walks through our doors, college is an expectation. From day one at 21st Century Charter School @ Gary, students receive a tailored education to make this possible.

It’s an education that fits.

We’ve established innovative partnerships to build the skills and knowledge to be successful in life and learning. Your child will graduate prepared.
