Step Ahead Academy

We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community, providing accelerated education for highly motivated 5th to 7th graders.


Welcome to Step Ahead Academy, a dynamic institution devoted to assisting students who have faced academic challenges but have the desire and motivation to move ahead. Under the experienced leadership of Principal Angela Denman, we have created an environment that enables students to complete two years of curriculum within a single school year.

Focused on core academic subjects such as language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science, our Academy is not a quick-fix solution but a platform for those committed to excelling. With small class sizes, we emphasize individualized instruction, experiential activities, and character development, equipping students with the skills necessary for success in higher grade levels.

Our mission goes beyond academics. We prepare our students to reach their fullest potential through diverse learning and community service opportunities. Join us at Step Ahead Academy, where focus, determination, and a willingness to learn are the stepping stones to a bright future.
