Fort Wayne Leaders

Thank you for engaging with us through

Love Fort Wayne.


In 2022, Smith Academy proudly celebrated

10 years of significant impact on youth and families in the Fort Wayne community... a decade of training young men to be leaders in their community through the development of responsibility, dignity, character,

and an instinct of service.


In looking toward the future, we are eagerly preparing a new facility designed to better serve our community and our scholars.  

As a tuition-free charter school,

these milestones would not be possible

without our private and corporate supporters.

There are two primary ways you can
do something




Members of the community and local organizations have played important roles in developing our young men through volunteer work. There are opportunities to volunteer with SAFE in several different areas including:​

  • Mentorship

  • Club Leadership

  • Tutoring

  • Teacher Assistance

  • Service Projects

  • Fundraising

  • Coaching



The academy is looking for quality partners to invest in the preparation of our new facility in Southeast Fort Wayne so we can expand our reach to many more young people and their families. This new permanent location is readily accessible to our students, holds potential for increased capacity, and positions us for increased impact in our community. Please consider donating to our Expanding Excellence building campaign.

Please indicate "building fund" when making the donation. For partners making larger donations, sponsorships are available. Please contact us for more details.
