"Our faculty and staff truly care about their students. There’s trust and safety and willingness to take good risks that’s created through this care."
Welcome to Indian Creek School.

The 2021-22 academic year is a momentous one for ICS. This is the first year in our school’s 48 year history that our Pre-K – grade 12 students are all together on one campus. ICS just completed a major construction project that allowed for our Lower School students to join the Middle and Upper School students on our revamped 114 wooded acres, just north of Annapolis. Our campus is a really beautiful place that holds a lot of history, charm, and potential.

Indian Creek is a school in a constant state of forward momentum. We do not stand still. I love this aspect of our community, especially in an era where norms have been challenged and the way of the world seems uncertain at times. There is nothing uncertain about our School though: We have always and will continue to do what we believe is best for students. We strive to create a sense of belonging and we each take individual responsibility for creating a welcoming environment. We also don’t mind trying new things, teaching new ways, or creating new programs. Progress is a part of ICS.

Indian Creek teachers invest a great deal of knowledge, innovation, and creativity into their teaching and take care to know and connect with each individual student. This kind of approach helps our students take ownership of their learning, and pushes them to challenge themselves on their own terms and within the construct of our rigorous college-preparatory curriculum. Alumni ‘Creekers’ are very loyal and consistently express their gratitude to the School because of the connections they have made with their teachers. Our faculty and staff truly care about their students. There’s trust and safety and willingness to take good risks that’s created through this care. ICS students are prepared and motivated to make a positive impact on the world after they graduate.

I hope you are able to visit our School and connect with some of our community members. Whether you’re on campus for an admissions visit, or maybe on the fields or in Eagle Dome for a club soccer or field hockey game, or if you participate in a summer program, we trust that you will feel the energy, sense of belonging, and spirit that makes Indian Creek special.
