Board of Trustees

Indian Creek School is guided by a group of talented and dedicated volunteer Trustees.
The Board of Trustees, to which ownership of the School was transferred in 1993, sets the School’s strategic direction and provides oversight and stewardship for the School. Indian Creek’s Board of Trustees is comprised of past and present parents, alumni, and leaders in the community. Meetings take place monthly during the school year.
