This building project is the final step in Indian Creek’s strategic plan to bring all grades together on its 114-acre Crownsville Road Campus.
The project began with the construction of its $4.15 Million Eagles Athletics Complex featuring two turf fields, one Bermuda grass playing field, one practice field, six tennis courts, and one natural grass baseball field, lights to provide extended playing time, 500-seat capacity bleachers, and spaces for the community to gather.
The School moved grades 7 & 8 from the Lower and Middle School Campus on Evergreen Road to the Upper School building.
In 2019, Indian Creek's Evergreen Campus was sold to Rockbridge Academy, as a major step towards unifying the Lower and Upper Schools on one campus. Since then, Indian Creek School and Rockbridge Academy’s lower schools have co-occupied the Evergreen campus in different parts of the building, with ICS renting the space while preparing the Upper School Campus to welcome all students in Pre-K through grade 12.
October 2020, Indian Creek added Eagle Dome - a dynamic facility, containing 27,000 additional square feet of indoor athletics space. The Eagle Dome provides an air-supported enclosure over four tennis courts, creating versatile indoor space to be used for tennis, basketball, volleyball, and any outdoor sports team during inclement weather. The dome has been invaluable this school year in particular, allowing more indoor space where students can be together adhering to physical distancing guidelines while the school offers in-person and hybrid learning options. The school also opened “David’s Court,” an outdoor basketball court for Middle School students in memory of ICS alumnus David Snyder.
ICS breaks ground on the final step in the School’s campus unification plan. The existing Upper School building will receive a 12,000 square-foot addition, as well as a significant upgrade to reorganize space to provide dedicated learning and community space for Lower, Middle, and Upper School students. Enhanced classrooms, along with a newly created Academic Resource Center, Learning Lab, cafeteria, “Founder’s Patio,” and playgrounds, combined with upgrades to current student hang-out spaces, atrium, and auditorium will serve to strengthen the community and fulfill the commitment to provide an innovative, personalized, well-rounded education for all ICS students on one campus.
