Inspire. Dream. Achieve.

Age 3 through 8th grade

Welcome to our Virtual Admission Office

Our campus is closed, but our Admission Team welcomes your inquiry and virtual visit!

Thank you for your interest in The Independence School, particularly during this challenging time. While we wish we could meet in person to answer your questions and show you our amazing campus and classrooms, 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 join us at an upcoming Virtual Admission Information Session, or contact Mrs. Donna Sentman, Admission and Financial Aid Manager, to schedule a personal conversation about our program.

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