NOVEMBER 18, 2019 – INDIANAPOLIS – Hope Academy, Indiana’s only high school for students in recovery from substance-use disorders, will present its full proposal for a new charter and to remain serving as a recovery high school to the Indianapolis Charter School Board on November 21. The school board will hear from Hope Academy administrators, business and government leaders, parents and other supporters prior to making their vote. Hope Academy has extended an invitation to all supporters to attend the open public meeting.
With the Hope Academy’s current charter expiring at the end of the 2019-2020 school year, administrators are pursuing new options to allow for the school to grow and expand its partnerships. Hope Academy serves a unique purpose in Indiana as the only tuition-free recovery high school in the state. No other comparable option exists for students pursuing an Indiana Core 40 diploma in a setting with supportive recovery services.
