Senior Spotlight: Colin Abbott
Colin Abbott came to Indian Creek as a freshman, and he has since enjoyed a learning environment perfectly sized and suited for his high school experience. “One thing I really like is how you can really connect with people,” said Abbott. “It’s not like you’re just another student in a classroom. The teacher knows you. That’s helped me find out what academic area is my passion.”
That academic passion is computer science, which Colin plans to study at Anne Arundel Community College next fall. At AACC he also plans to play lacrosse, which he picked up as a junior at ICS after playing for the baseball team as a freshman and sophomore. The ability to try new things while at ICS also led Abbott to work on the tech crew for ICS theater productions.
Abbott said he’ll cherish the comfort level with teachers that allowed him to pursue what he’s most interested in. “Computer science, I found out, is what I want to pursue and major in in college,” said Abbott. “The small environment [at ICS], you feel comfortable going in and asking questions after class and help you find out what you truly love.”
Indian Creek school is a co-educational, college preparatory independent school, located in Crownsville, Maryland. Students in Pre-K3 through grade 12 receive a vibrant educational experience based on excellent academics steeped in strong student-teacher connections.
