The Truths We Hold

All members of Thrival Indy are embraced and affirmed, despite race, affiliation, orientation, or gender identity. Through our language, actions, policies, and procedures, we uphold a school community which neither fosters nor tolerates bullying of any kind.

We are culturally responsible.

Cultural differences are not only accepted, but they are celebrated at Thrival Indy. Through our robust curriculum, we navigate Indiana State standards from diverse perspectives. In addition to relevant curricular themes, we respect the various cultures represented in our school community through our school policies. For this reason, our students are not required to dress uniformly.

We are joyful.

Learning should be a joyful experience. At Thrival Indy, we are dedicated to maintaining positivity and joy throughout our halls, classrooms, and offices. We develop engaging projects, invite inspiring guest speakers, and design exciting learning excursions with our students in mind.

We encourage excellence.

We provide supports such as extended class periods, after-school tutoring , and parent pathways in order to assure that every student meets and exceeds Indiana's standards of proficiency. Students, teachers, administrators, and parents are all supported to achieve their academic, personal, and professional goals.
