We know how important education is to you and for your kids. From pre-school to advanced degrees, Indianapolis exceeds educational expectations—from A-Z.
If your child is not yet old enough for school, and if you are in need of a good daycare, try Child Care Answers for help.
We know that your children’s education is top priority for you! Indianapolis and its surrounding areas offer public, private and charter schools boasting top-notch instruction and preparation for students’ futures.
Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) serve the core of Indianapolis—Center Township—and some close-in areas. Like the public school districts of many large cities, IPS has struggled, but it does have some excellent schools and interesting options.
Indianapolis also has a number of charter schools. Charter schools are tuition-free public schools open to any Indiana resident. Charter schools are freed from many of the regulations governing traditional public schools. They control their own curriculum, staffing, organization and budget. In exchange for this freedom, they must maximize student potential and meet and exceed Indiana’s academic standards.
Outside of IPS' boundaries, nine township schools districts serve the students of Marion County. Indy Homes' service areas include Lawrence, Pike and Washington townships.
Indianapolis' suburbs all have their own public school districts. They include:
Indiana’s statewide voucher program, known as the Choice Scholarship Program, allows students in low- and middle-income families to receive vouchers to attend private school. Eligible students receive a voucher for some or most of what the state would have spent on their child had they attended public school. Students must apply to the private schools of their choice and be accepted (admission criteria vary). It's important to note that not all private schools accept vouchers.
