Step Ahead Academy
We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community, providing accelerated education for highly motivated 5th to 7th graders.
ACCELERATE YOUR FUTURE WITH STEP AHEAD
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.
Hello, I am the proud principal of Step Ahead Academy where we “Take Responsibility and We Expect Excellence”. I have had the privilege of serving the Step Ahead Community for 5 years and the IPS family for 28 years. This is not a program designed for students with major behavior issues. The program is focused on student achievement and character development for each student admitted into the Academy. We want to stress the unique opportunity this provides for each of our students. However, it is not guaranteed that all of our students will be double promoted. It will take focus, determination and a willingness to learn from both our students and parents for the program to work for you. We have a wonderful staff that is here to help you achieve each of your academic goals. You have already taken the right step towards your academic career by showing an interest in attending STEP Ahead Academy. Welcome to Step Ahead where we continue to “Step up” !Mrs. Angela Denman
