Choose the best public school for your child

The Mind Trust has supported the launch of 38 schools since 2006 that collectively serve more than 12,000 students across the district and have offered unique options to Indianapolis families.

In 2015, Education Entrepreneur Fellow alumna Caitlin Hannon founded Enroll Indy to streamline and bring greater equity to the public school enrollment process in Indianapolis. 

Enroll Indy works to give all families in Indianapolis equitable access to a diverse set of charter and Indianapolis Public School options by providing a one-stop enrollment process, easy-to-understand information about every school , and data on school improvement initiatives.

Together, we can do more. The Mind Trust believes change in our education system should be led with the people most affected: parents, families, and students.
