    "Academic Excellence Through the Arts"

    This is our motto at Tindley Genesis Academy (TGA) where we believe that academic excellence can be achieved at its fullest potential with and through the music and the arts.

    We believe it's critical for elementary school students to begin preparing for rigorous middle school, high school and college opportunities at a young age. That's why our students participate in a challenging and interactive curriculum based on the same accelerated model used at the Tindley high school and middle schools. Tindley Genesis also provides exceptional instruction in music and infuses performing arts skills into the general education setting.

    Ultimately, our students will possess the confidence, academic ability and resiliency to overcome obstacles on their journey toward academic and professional success.

    The key to getting our students started on this journey is a stellar ensemble of teachers who not only expect excellence, but also ensure that all of their actions promote the excellence for which they strive.

    TGA is the Indiana's first and only music-focused accelerated elementary school. . We will enter into our first year of existence in 2017-2018. Teaching and leading at TGA is an incredible opportunity to build a learning community from the ground up.

Since opening our doors in 2004, 100% of Tindley graduates have been accepted to a select college or university.

    History:

    Tindley Accelerated Schools launched in 2002 as the Charter for Accelerated Learning, Inc. In 2004, we launched Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School in one of Indianapolis' most impoverished neighborhoods. In six short years, the Tindley School established itself as a model for urban schooling in Indiana, winning the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award in 2010.

    Now, Tindley Accelerated Schools is focused on giving students throughout urban Indianapolis access to opportunities for strong educations. That's why in 2010 the Charter for Accelerated Learning became Tindley Accelerated Schools, dedicated to expanding quality college-preparatory educational services for young people and helping Indianapolis schools excel - so their students can do likewise.

    Become a Leader at a Nationally Recognized Charter School System:

    In 2010, Tindley Accelerated Schools was the recipient of the National Blue Ribbon School award given by the United States Department of Education. We have also been twice presented with a Four Star School status by the Indiana Department of Education which places Tindley in the top 25% of public schools in Indiana.
