Welcome to the next chapter of CTL- bringing world class education to the globe through the development of a hybrid eco-system of online and in person education clubhouses.
CTL has a proven track record with 100% of its graduates accepted to top rate universities in the US. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the single school site is ready to branch out and engage the world.
Covid 19 proved that learning does not have to be geographically bound. Therefore CTL is launching its Global online academic secondary program (grades 6-12) to offer those not located in Abuja its fully accredited, project based, Advanced Placement aligned American education program. Students graduating from this program will be eligible to apply to universities around the world. As enrollment increases, in-person education clubhouses will open to accommodate the CTL scholars where they can go and co-learn and be part of a 3 dimensional community while connected via their virtual platform for the academic content.
The vision of CTL is to develop passionate scholars, global citizens and servant leaders who are equipped to be agents of positive change in their communities.
CTL School Mission
The Mission of CTL Academy is to create an inclusive environment that meets the needs of diverse learners; to harness the advances in science, technology, and the arts; to prepare students to be critical and creative thinkers, and problem solvers.
CTL Believes that:
● Each child is a gift, and each child’s enrollment is an invaluable trust.
● Each member of our school community (from the Head of School to the cleaner) is a role model.
● Parents are critical partners in the development and success of each child.
● Character counts! Everywhere, all the time; we adopt the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship
Do.Think.Learn began with a question, “Can you teach our son?” And like many great bands and companies, Do.Think.Learn started in a garage. Since 2017 we have worked to change education one student at time. These days we have a nice office and more students, but our goal is the same. We know if we’ve done our job when students look up from a project and say, “Yeah, I got this.”
Students succeed in schools that meet their needs. Do.Think.Learn adapts the curriculum to fit the needs of each student and how they learn best. We emphasize: Process over Product, a four day school week (Friday is Choose Your Own Adventure Day), no homework, no testing, more meaningful assessment, and students driving their learning.
We believe that less is more. We offer students (and families) something different and something more. We focus on nontraditional learners, regenerative education, and students who want more from school. Nontraditional learning unfortunately often has a bad reputation. DTL provides a flexible learning community to allow each student time and space to explore and develop their ideas and skills. This reinvigorates learning for students. We also focus on depth instead of breadth of learning and skills development over subject mastery. DTL helps students learn in a way that works for them. Students don’t all learn the same way, so we don’t teach them the same way. We adapt and shape how we teach and what we teach to each student. This way each student is prepared for whatever future they create for themself.
We are a small, independent school that attracts students in Kindergarten through 8th grade from across Indianapolis and the surrounding communities. Our mission is to discover, recognize and nurture the talents and gifts of each child, graduating students with the capacity, knowledge and social awareness to be actively engaged in their communities.
When children come to our school, they have the opportunity to move, experience, create and build. Our progressive model engages students in hands-on projects and service learning experiences. Our small class sizes and flexible curriculum help students feel valued and create classroom environments where their talents and interests are accepted and cultivated.
Our teachers are trained in sound educational practices, and they create a quality experience that is measured by academic, emotional and social growth. We value the contributions that our families make to our school, and honor the diverse experiences and histories of our students and their families.
