GEO Students Start Taking College Courses
on College Campuses as early as 9th grade

  • GEO’s students ranked in the top 5% of the state of Indiana for number of college credits earned while in high school.
  • In 2019, each student earned an average of 19 college credits, and 27% of the graduating class earned 30 or more college credits–a full year of college while in high school.
  • In 2013, the school celebrated its first high school student who earned an associate degree, or 60 college credits, from Ivy Tech while attending our school.
  • Since that time, 25 students in our Gary school have earned a full associate degree–two years of college–and one earned a full bachelor’s degree while in high school (a first in Indiana history).

As a result, 21st Century Charter School was ranked #1 in College
and Career Readiness among NW Indiana High Schools in 2018

In 2019, 21C, which has one of the highest percentages of low-income
and minority students in the state, outperformed the state average in
College and Career Readiness by nearly 15 percentage points.
