Thank you for your interest in The Independence School

We are pleased to welcome you to our Virtual Admissions Page.

We hope this page and website will help provide 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 bring their skills home and transition successfully to distance learning last spring. 

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.
