Upper School Faculty

Indian Creek Crownsville Upper SchoolAt the Upper School, faculty offer college preparatory classes that are designed to hone not only a student’s understanding of the facts of a topic, but to develop their critical thinking skills, as well. Students are encouraged to explore their interests, and teachers spur new interests with the introduction of thought-provoking subjects, as well.

Indian Creek College Prep CrownsvilleUpper School faculty do not simply see their students in the classroom. They also see each student as a member of an athletic team, in the cast of a play, an officer in the SGA, or part of their advisory group. Faculty members have a role in all facets of school life, enabling them to come to know the whole student.
