Campus tours are available by appointment.
 

Thank you for your interest in The Independence School, particularly during this challenging time. While we are not yet able to show you school in session on campus, we can now provide a summer tour of our facilities by appointment. In the meantime, we hope our website provides a helpful glimpse into the value of an Independence education.

Vicky Yatzus, Head of School

Independence is a school where students Learn to Learn and Learn to Lead. Never has this been more apparent than seeing our students bringing their skills home and transitioning successfully to distance learning. (To learn more about our distance learning program, please click the orange box below.)

We invite you to contact Mrs. Donna Sentman, Admission and Financial Aid Manager, to learn more about our program. We are now also scheduling personal tours of our campus by appointment with the appropriate health and safety protocols in effect.

We look forward to hearing from you and learning how your children might benefit from an exceptional Independence foundation.


WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.
