21st Century Charter School at Gary

At 21st Century Charter School, all roads lead to college – and beyond.

21st Century Charter School is a free public charter school. We are one of a very few schools offering a Middle College program, which allows our qualifying high school students to take real college courses for real college credit – and it’s free of charge to our students and their families.

Our Middle College program is only one reason to attend 21st Century Charter School.

Our curriculum and our teaching methods are designed to let your child excel as fast as their ability allows. This kind of competency-based approach lets kids of higher ability progress past students their same age. It also permits students to regroup, master material not mastered at a more restrictive school, then, with new-found confidence, race toward their academic potential.

Traditional public schools, parochial schools and other tuition-based private schools serve many children very well, but 21st Century Charter School is here to provide a choice.

We offer a new way to excel.
