Let's Change the World Together
It’s hard to believe it has been almost 25 years since GEO was founded. A big idea to stop talking about school choice and to start serving and providing a better educational choice for low-income minority families.
In 1998, GEO Foundation received a seed grant from what was then the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership. After a few years working with families and community leaders in Indiana, we started one of Indiana’s first charter schools with 150 students in 2002. Today, we serve nearly 4,000 students and have more than 650 staff in three cities–Indianapolis, Gary and Baton Rouge–and two states–Indiana and Louisiana. Data from this school year (2021-2022) shows 40% of our network’s high school students are currently enrolled in real college classes at Indiana University NW, Purdue University NW, Ivy Tech Community College, IUPUI, Baton Rouge Community College and Marian University.
Our schools are among the best when it comes to serving children from marginalized communities and getting them to graduate from high school on time AND having already earned either a career certification and/or college degree or both, and they are debt free. Indiana just shared data (November 2022) showing our students are beating the state average in college credits and degrees earned while in high school by 5X.
Our schools are helping to change the conversation about what students can learn/earn while in K-12 schools and that America can expect more from the tax dollars we invest in K-12 public education.
