Inspire. Dream. Achieve.

Age 3 through 8th grade


Investing in the best possible start for your child’s education is invaluable. The critical early years are when students become inspired to learn and motivated to succeed, and important study, social and emotional skills are established. The investment in an Independence education pays off. With a reputation for being well-prepared, Independence graduates are accepted into their top choices for high school, and many receive generous scholarships.

Making Independence affordable to those who wish to attend remains an important goal. We are fortunate to be able to provide financial aid for students with demonstrated need through our Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). In addition, applicants with at least one parent who serves as a full-time first responder in our community are eligible for the First Responders Community Partnership, and children of Independence alumni are eligible for The Legacy Scholarship for Children of Independence Graduates.

Please feel free to contact the Admission Office at 302-239-0332 if you need more information.
