Student Life


In addition to engaging classroom experiences, Independence’s vibrant and active community of learners participate in a diverse variety of clubs and activities, ranging from drama to Quiz Bowl. Countless leadership opportunities exist, as well. Becoming a Student Ambassador, joining the Student Government Association and volunteering for community service through the Character Development Program all help to build confident and independent students.

Enrichment and fun do not end with the school day, however, as offerings through Extended Day and Summer at Independence keep our campus spirited virtually all year long.

We hope that you will take this chance to explore all aspects of Student Life at our school and keep up-to-date with the latest news, social media feeds, photo galleries and upcoming events.

“As I enter high school at Tower Hill, I realize that my years at Independence have been a fabulous journey. I thrived in a supportive environment and built independent and unique skills to fit my learning style. The faculty set high standards and inspired me to excel academically. I was encouraged to explore different interests and talents through active participation in many extracurricular activities – athletic teams, student government, music programs, art programs, science teams, and service opportunities – where I learned to lead and work with others to accomplish goals.”

“As I begin my first year at Salesianum, I am very proud to say that I am a graduate of Independence. During my high school search, I realized how well respected my school was in the community and how prepared I was for the next academic step. I know that Independence provided me with challenging academics while nurturing me to be an independent thinker. The teachers, activities, and respect of community and service all added to the excellent education I received.”
