The mission of DeVeau’s School of Gymnastics is to teach gymnastics, cheerleading, tumbling, ninja, and other acrobatically based sports to children in a fun, safe, and positive environment so as to advance these children to the ultimate level of achievement both physically and mentally. DeVeau’s seeks to enrich children’s lives by teaching them life skills, providing a fun physical outlet, and mentoring the child as a whole. DeVeau’s aspires to put the child’s joy and love of learning as our utmost goal.
Joan DeVeau founded DeVeau’s School of Gymnastics in 1982 with 185 gymnasts and 3 instructors in a 5,000 square foot facility on Shadeland Avenue in Indianapolis. DeVeau’s current location in Fishers, IN boasts over 33,000 square feet and houses over 40 instructors. Over the past 30 years, DeVeau’s has grown to over 300 competitive gymnasts and cheerleaders on team and almost 1,000 students in recreation classes. Despite our record number of students, and the largest recreation and team programs in the state, DeVeau’s has maintained its values of a fun, family atmosphere that loves to see children enjoy learning and understand the value of earning success.
In addition to the students currently enrolled, DeVeau’s has had thousands of students through our doors over the years, and many contribute their triumphs to the foundation and life lessons they received at DeVeau’s. Over 35 gymnasts have received college scholarships to schools such as Air Force Academy, Arizona State University, Ball State University, Brown University, Cornell University, Indiana State University, Indiana University, Ohio State University, Stanford University, University of Alabama, UCLA, University of Illinois, University of Kentucky, University of Nebraska, University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, Western Michigan University, and many more.
In 2008, DeVeau’s gymnast Samantha Peszek made the USA Olympic gymnastics team, and she had trained at DeVeau’s since she was 2 years old! In 2007, another record year, DeVeau’s competitive Teams swept Indiana State Championships, claiming 1st place in all team divisions for both the boys and girls (the first gymnastics school in Indiana to do so)! In addition to successful sports careers, DeVeau’s students have gone on to be successful doctors, lawyers, teachers, and many more professions. Even more rewarding, many of our former students have returned to work at DeVeau’s—coaches Amy, Shannon, Mandy, Mallory, Chelsea, Jessica, Krissi, Blaize, and Jenna were all former students at DeVeau’s.
