About Us

Welcome from the Head of School

Since 1973, Indian Creek School (ICS) has served students and their families well by providing innovative teaching and facilitating engaged learning. This academically challenging, college preparatory education is offered in a collaborative community where faculty members get to know each student very well.
Welcome to Indian Creek School!

As you begin to explore Indian Creek, you’ll meet faculty, staff, students and families who truly love our School.

You’ll come to understand how deeply Indian Creek’s teachers know, see, hear and understand their students. You’ll learn about an innovative teaching and learning environment that’s reflective of current neuroscience research and a curriculum that is innovative and future focused. You’ll discover a diverse community that draws great strength from our wide range of backgrounds, talents, and interests. You’ll be inspired by Indian Creek’s great momentum – which will soon bring our whole school together on a beautiful, flexible, and modernized campus in 2021. And you’ll appreciate that Indian Creek is a school that stewards its resources responsibly and considers our families first, ever mindful of the costs associated with education. All these pieces – among many others - will lead you on your own path to loving Indian Creek School.

My own introduction to independent schools was facilitated by a family friend who taught chemistry at a school in my hometown. Little did I know at the time how important that introduction would be. While there are many examples of why being a student at my hometown school was transformative for me, the number one reason it was so powerful was due to the caring adults who looked out for me, gave me space to grow, reined me in when I needed counsel, and fostered a love of learning, love of my teammates, and love for my school community. These qualities are a permanent part of me.

When I first visited Indian Creek, I immediately saw teachers doing these same things for their students. The faculty and staff of ICS are unyieldingly committed to their school and our students. And this dedication has fostered in Indian Creek students and families a love of learning, love of their community, and love of their School.

Come visit us at Indian Creek. You’ll find that our focus, commitment and passion are the right ingredients for a unique and inspired education.
