Raising Kids in Indiana? Think Centerville

Raising Kids in Indiana? Think Centerville

Indiana is a great place to move if you’ve got kids, but do you know which places are ideal for raising a family? Even if you already live in Indiana, this is some information you might want to check out!

If you’re thinking of moving to Indiana with the kids, you might want to think about Centerville. It’s about 65 miles outside of Indianapolis, which makes it ideal for anyone wanting to move to the area but stay outside of the city limits. And 65 miles isn’t a terrible commute for work, either!

Because you’re moving with kids, you’ll probably want to know about the schools, right? The Centerville-Abington Community School Corp. serves Centerville and there are two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Studies have shown that the area is strong in family values and has a highly rated school system. As your kids grow you’ll be happy to know that there are also colleges nearby – Earlham College and Indiana University East.

One thing you must be aware of if you consider moving to Centerville – the population is just 2,067. That’s pretty small, so if you are moving from a big city, it might be a bit of culture shock. We suggest you visit the town before you decide to plant roots.

The median family income in Centerville is $55,092. If Centerville seems too small for you, you might consider Berne, Indiana as another option.
