At Vanguard Collegiate of Indianapolis, it is our firm belief that empowering middle schoolers to find and use their leadership voices will change the world. We encourage this one scholar at a time. 

In order to truly make the academic goals of our middle school students a reality, we start with clear objectives that every scholar can see, utilize and put into daily use in their lives. We create scholars by setting a high bar for educational fluency and leadership, and we provide extensive support to get there. As we are a small public middle school — we ably focus on each unique individual we have the privilege to call scholars. 

Let’s hear from some of our amazing eighth grade ‘original’ alumni — and original Vanguards — who graduated from Vanguard and have begun their secondary education journey. They are college prepared, character driven, and mighty leaders in thought, word and action. Check them out: 








And here is some timely advice for our current 2021 graduates — on how to best prepare for high school, from former Vanguard scholars and peers: 

Vanguard is a thoughtfully designed public middle school for grades 5-8, deliberately small in size to better serve every scholar. We adapt to the varied learning styles and holistic needs of our scholars; because we are not spread too thin and because we are dedicated to the pursuit and perseverance of every scholar’s dreams. We walk their truth together. Enrolling now, tuition-free, for fall 2021. Join us!
