We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools serving grades 7 through 12.

Positive Supports Academy is a haven for students in grades 7 through 12 who may have encountered social and/or behavioral challenges in traditional classroom settings. Located at 3200 East Raymond Street, under the dynamic leadership of Principal Dr. Terrell Henderson, we offer a unique blend of computer-based and classroom instruction, tailored to the needs of our students.

Our mission is to foster personal responsibility by addressing the social, emotional, and behavioral concerns that our students may face. We achieve this through mental health services, character education, counseling, conflict resolution, and character development. Our vision is to prepare students for a rapidly changing world by enhancing critical thinking, personal relations skills, and active engagement in line with our core values: Respect Yourself, Embrace the Process, Be Productive.

We would like to give a huge thanks to Honest Living 4 Young Women Inc for being a guest speaker this week to our young ladies! They thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and we’re looking forward to seeing how our scholars blossom under your wing! Keep up your charitable efforts for the minds of young women & our community! 🚺 See MoreSee Less
