In 2005, we were invited to Gary, Indiana by hometown leaders to start a public charter school. Residents wanted to do something to help improve the educational outcomes in the city. They witnessed annual high school graduation rates hovering around 50%, and college Associate and Bachelor degrees were and still are almost non-existent (only 5% and 6% of households in Gary have one of these degrees respectively). We believed we could create a school that produces on-time high school graduates AND students who experienced and earned a serious number of college credits, indeed earn their Associate Degree, while enrolled with us.  Additionally, we believed if we did our job right, our students would graduate and go on to complete a four-year college degree, too.
