Our School

About Our School

Rooted School Indianapolis is a public charter high school located at Eastern Star Church’s The ROCK Initiative. Rooted School seeks to lay the groundwork for closing the financial wealth gap in our students’ lifetimes. We believe schools can be the source for laying the groundwork to change this. Simply put, we exist to provide our students personal pathways to financial freedom. Our unique and personalized curriculum model will achieve this by partnering with local companies to guide students towards graduation with work-based experience, certifications, a high school diploma and a path to post-secondary education. Our promise is that students will graduate with a job offer in one hand and a college acceptance letter in the other.
