An extension of the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School, the Tindley Collegiate Academy is an all-girls middle school designed to help young girls become successful scholars regardless of their past academic performance.
Tindley Collegiate offers a unique curriculum focused on building scholar identity through a combination of rituals, routines, presentations, and many one-on-one conversations with students. Our instructional approach is tailored for the needs of girls, providing a wealth of opportunities for collaboration and dialogue.
Through a combination of accelerated classroom learning and character education, we empower girls to become successful scholars, preparing them for the rigors of high school and college opportunities. Our goal is to transform each of our students not only into excellent students, but also women of excellence.
Operated by Tindley Accelerated Schools, Tindley Prep is an all-male middle school designed to spark higher levels of academic achievement in boys. Located in the Meadows area on the Northeast side of Indianapolis, our school fills a critical need for strong education and community development in a low-income, urban environment.
Tindley Prep is an extension of the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School, which won the Epic Award for Innovative Practices, received a Title I Distinguished School Designation, was qualified to be named an Indiana 4-Star School, and was designated a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education – all in its first seven years of operation.
Like the Tindley School, Tindley Prep places students in a rigorous and powerful learning environment, putting them on track for acceptance at a high-quality 4-year college or university. By providing research-based educational, social and emotional programming specifically for adolescent boys, Tindley Prep gives young urban males the tools they need to become goal-oriented, college-bound scholars.
