Joshua Academy


Joshua Academy is the sole public charter school serving grades K-6 in Evansville, Indiana. With a total enrollment of 264 students, the school has a predominantly African American student population (75%) and a high percentage of students (73.48%) qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a significant level of economic disadvantage among the student body.

Academically, Joshua Academy is struggling, with proficiency rates on ILEARN tests well below the state average across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 3rd grade English Language Arts, the school's proficiency rate is 15% compared to the state average of 39.7%, and in 6th grade Math, the proficiency rate is only 6.67% compared to the state average of 38.3%. The school's high chronic absenteeism rate of 15.9% is likely a contributing factor to these poor academic outcomes.

Despite the school's challenges, its per-student spending of $10,079 is slightly higher than the state average, and the student-teacher ratio of 29.3 is on the higher end. Without additional data on other schools in the Joshua Academy district, it is difficult to make meaningful comparisons and identify potential best practices or successful strategies that the school could learn from. Addressing the root causes of the school's low academic performance, high poverty, and chronic absenteeism will be crucial for improving outcomes and providing a high-quality education for the students of Joshua Academy.
