“Indian Creek is the premier independent school in the Annapolis area where kindness is currency, well-being is priority, and excellence in education is relentlessly pursued.” – ICS Vision Statement
As Head of School, I am regularly asked what my vision for Indian Creek looks like. Well, you’ve read it at the top of this page! More than once it’s been shared with me that the Creek already feels like it’s achieved that vision. This is a flattering observation, but  the truth is that we need to work hard and remain intentional as we aspire to achieve this vision, every day and in every aspect of school life.
Kindness at the Creek is more than just being nice to each other. It means showing up and standing up for each other. In doing so we acknowledge that honesty and respect are values that underscore the need to be there for each other. This is a life-long endeavor at the Creek, and we work to provide the students and adults in our community with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to advocate for themselves and others.
When you’re on campus it’s easy to see and feel that Indian Creek is a community of care. That is why we can so plainly state that well-being is priority. When we treat each other with kindness, respect and empathy, it creates a platform for us all to feel safe, comfortable and included. These are the vital ingredients we all need in order to feel that our mental and physical health are prioritized, and the components that allow us to excel in the classroom and beyond.

Any school is quick to point out the quality of its program. What distinguishes Indian Creek’s program is our relentless pursuit to offer the best education for all students, PK-12. We value effort, we listen and collaborate, and we are open to growth. The result is an educational program that is current and future-focused, aiming to prepare students for success in all parts of life. This part of the vision inspires me daily, and it’s my hope that all Creekers are able to articulate these ingredients for excellence.
You can feel this Vision in action when you’re on our beautiful 114-acre wooded campus with our students, faculty, and families. There is an authenticity and a unique spirit found at the Creek that permeates our entire community. It’s very real. We look forward to welcoming you to campus for a visit so that you can experience this Creek pride for yourself!
