Christel House Indianapolis would begin operating Manual High School in the 2020-21 school year if the organization’s leadership can reach an agreement with Indianapolis Public Schools. The nonprofit made the announcement in a press release Dec. 4.

Christel House would operate the school as an innovation school, meaning the organization would have autonomy from the district, and in exchange IPS would be able to count enrollment and academic performance toward district numbers.

Christel House Academy South and Christel House DORS adult high school would move from their current facility to Manual, which is a few blocks north.

The nonprofit would maintain two separate high schools on the campus for three years to allow students to complete their education at Manual. Beginning in 2021, Christel House Academy West ninth graders would join the high school’s campus at Manual.

Christel House would retain Manual’s name as part of the school’s new name.

The IPS board voted recently to not renew the district’s contract with current operator Charter School USA.
