Challenge

89% of Christel House Academy students receive free and reduced lunch. For the majority of CHA students, higher education is an unknown to both the student and their families. Our students have proven themselves - with state standardized testing scores 9.8% higher than the local school district - but need funding and guidance to navigate the college selection and application process.

Solution

Christel House helps children around the world break the cycle of poverty, realize their hopes and dreams, and become self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
Christel House Academy (CHA) is a public charter school working with 613 low-income students in inner-city Indianapolis. We will have our first graduating class in 2014. For many inner-city students, the obstacle to college is not ability, but lack of opportunity. With your support, CHA will equip seniors with a full range of options when making choices about their future. Your gift will exposure students to higher education by paying for college visits and application fees-a hindrance for many.

Long-Term Impact

College helps to break the poverty barrier. On average, an individual with a bachelor's degree makes $1 million more in his or her lifetime than a high school graduate. Your support can help students gain greater exposure to higher education and help them overcome obstacles in the application process.
