And, for parents, it is a milestone event as their child transitions from pre-school to formal school and begins their educational foundation needed for future learning.

Indianola Promise Community Brochure 2013

What is the Indianola Promise Community? The Indianola Promise Community (IPC) is a community-based initiative to provide children with the opportunity to succeed in school, graduate, and attend college. While it is sponsored by Delta Health Alliance, its many local partners include: Indianola School District, City of Indianola, Delta State University, B.B. King Museum, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and many others. Our office is located at 135 Front Street in Indianola, though we have staff and volunteers working throughout the city. And while we sponsor many programs, we have one priority – making sure children in Indianola have the opportunities they need to excel, so they “never miss a beat” from birth to college graduation.

Delta Business Journal Ad - July 2013

While the Delta heat and humidity takes its toll on most of us, it never seems to get in the way of the 100 or so students who have been attending the Indianola Promise School. These are rising kindergarteners who are getting a jump on school by attending an intensive, four-week session aimed at preparing them for August classes. Teachers tell us the Promise School makes all the difference in giving students confidence, in providing a foundation for the academic challenges of kindergarten, and teaching them how to work in small groups with certified instructors.
