Options Schools provide small, personalized learning communities for grade 6-12 students within Hamilton County (in the northern suburbs of Indianapolis) and across the state of Indiana.

As free, public charter schools, Options supports the academic and social needs of students that haven’t found success in the traditional school environment. At Options, students are encouraged to explore and embrace their individuality in a caring, supportive, and inclusive environment.

Options-Carmel was one of the first five charter schools in Indiana (opened in 2002), and due to the high demand for our individualized approach to students, Options opened its second campus, Options-Noblesville, in 2006. A fully online Distance Education program, Options Indiana, is also available to students throughout the state. Options also has programs & partnerships with organizations in Fishers (BACA) & Knightstown (HYCA).

Through small class sizes (15:1 student-to-teacher ratio) and an individualized academic approach, the outstanding and highly-qualified instructors and staff of Options propel students to achieve success both in the classroom and in their future endeavors.
