Our Story

Enlace Academy is a grassroots charter school that launched in 2013 on the west side of Indianapolis, serving K-8th grade. 

The name Enlace derives from the Spanish word for link or connection. Our school seeks to be the hub of community for families and to create meaningful connections with community partners, so our students, staff, and families can be healthy and happy. Enlace Academy cultivates the competence and the character of our students so they can become leaders who choose their own futures in high school, college, and beyond. 

The Enlace mascot is a jaguar, which in the Mayan culture was the protector of the community. Enlace Academy serves the predominantly immigrant population living in the International Marketplace. 

Our Values and Beliefs

Enlace Academy was founded on the core belief that,
“All Children Can and Will Learn."

We fulfill this belief through a deep commitment to our core value of “Lead with Love.” Leading with love means cultivating genuine relationships and pairing high expectations with strong support. 

Lead with Love means that we prioritize both academics and relationships to ensure our students feel loved and cared for each day.
