About Us

The mission of East Washington Academy (EWA) is to provide opportunities for students to achieve their personal best, become responsible and productive citizens, and embrace lifelong learning in a safe and positive environment.

At East Washington Academy, we believe:

  • All children can learn
  • All children benefit from developmentally appropriate materials, practices, and strategies
  • All children deserve a quality education in which individual needs are met, exceeded, and supported
  • Social skills, such as life skills, deserve the same attention as academic ones
  • School is not just about children: it encompasses families, parents, community, stakeholders, society, the environment and the world
  • Children must be encouraged to see the connections between new learning and prior knowledge
  • Children are more than test scores
  • Children learn best in a safe, caring environment, one that values diversity, collaboration, and risk-taking
  • Children thrive when expectations are high and self-esteem higher
  • Direct instruction of students helps to increase student achievement

Students at EWA have many opportunities to learn and grow through extracurricular activities, including athletics, math and science bowls, regional science fair, theatre club, and more.

In 2018, our students achieved the following awards:

  • City Champs for the Lady Wildcats basketball team
  • Second place in the Indiana Math Bowl state competition
  • Third place in the Indiana Science Bowl state competition
