We heard you.

The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Association for Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS) surveyed parents in the Baltimore/Annapolis region about the cost of an independent school education.  The survey confirmed what many of you have said to us: “The cost of an independent education is expensive and is becoming increasingly challenging for families.” In addition, you and other respondents said that the cost was a significant factor in their ability to provide access to the kind of education they value for their children. We heard you and we heard our prospective families. Indian Creek is an exceptional education, so how can we make it affordable to more qualified families?

We are pleased to offer our approach to an accessible tuition structure, appropriately named Flexible Tuition. This program allows us to build a financial model for each grade, and offer a defined number of seats in each grade at different tuition levels depending upon need. Flexible Tuition is transparent, defined, and responsible. We also believe this is the best tuition model for our current and prospective families. We invite you to learn more.
