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.
