Application Process

Thank you for your interest in Indian Creek School! Indian Creek welcomes qualified applicants with a variety of talents, interests, and perspectives, without regard to race, religion, gender, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.

Pre-K3 - 1st Grade

The Early Childhood admission process at ICS is designed to be as enjoyable and stress-free as possible for our youngest children. The goal of our admission committee is to make sure that a student is developmentally ready for our rich curriculum and the structure of a school day.

    • Pre-Kindergarten 4: Students must turn four by September 1, 2017
    • Kindergarten: Students must turn five by September 1, 2017
