ADI Schools to Relinquish Charters for Two Schools

ADI Schools, operator of two of the Mayor's charter schools for four years, is giving up the charters for both schools at the end of this school year.

ADI will relinquish the charters at the end of the 2014-2015 school year for Andrew Academy in the 4000 block fo East 38th Street and Padua Academy in the 300 block of North Warman Avenue.

“We have worked the past four years to provide a quality education to the children of these communities,” said Marc Guess, president of the ADI Board of Directors. “We are disappointed that we didn’t reach the goals we had set, but our focus has always been to do what is best for the students.  We believe these changes will allow for better opportunities for these children and their families.”

The Ballard administration is looking for a new manager for the Andrew Academy and the Archdiocese of Indianapolis plans to reopen a Catholic School next year at the Padua Academy in the 300 block of North Warman.

“High-quality schools are critical to the health and well-being of our city,” said Brandon Brown, Director of Charter Schools for the City of Indianapolis. “We support the ADI Board’s decision and appreciate its commitment to putting the interests of students and families first.”

Placement assistance will be available to all current students of both schools who wish to attend another Catholic school, charter school, or traditional public school.
