Who We Are

Promise Prep is a tuition-free public charter elementary school in Indianapolis, IN. We opened our doors in August 2021 with our founding Kindergarten, First and Second Grade classrooms.

The Promise Prep approach takes the best practices of high-performing charter schools from across the country and layers a focus on student voice and empowerment to build our future leaders

Promise Prep’s mission is to ensure ​all students have access to a high-quality education that enables them to become critical thinkers, have choices, capitalize on opportunities, and secure continuing economic advancement to positively impact their community.

Our vision is that Indianapolis will become a city that delivers on the promise of equitable education for all children so that we end generational poverty.
