Why Independence?

Learning to Learn. Learning to Lead

These words lie at the root of what we believe, how we teach, and what we know we can expect from our students. Independence students have the opportunities, experiences and independence they need to soar. We know because we watch them do so. Every. Single. Day

As a parent who has been at Indy for the last 14 years, I will be forever grateful for the role this institution has played in shaping my family. Nothing makes me happier than to see my kids always happy and excited to be heading to school. The positive and lasting imprint of Indy on their character is an unmistakable badge of honor.
