Inspire. Dream. Achieve.

Age 3 through 8th grade


As a parent that 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. My eldest daughter continues to maintain the friendships she made while at Indy and my twin boys are thriving in their current grades. Indy has been a blessing to my family, but all of that could not have been possible without the personal commitment to make the institution a better place by the leadership and the fabulous teachers. The affirmation that I made the right choice is when friends and colleagues who meet my kids ask whether they go to private school… The positive and lasting imprint of Indy on the kids' character is an unmistakable badge of honor.

The many reasons why parents and students choose Independence are as diverse as the school community itself.  

For families seeking not only outstanding academics, but also the arts, athletics, technology, and a variety of interest clubs, Independence offers opportunities for children to become both strong students and well-rounded individuals.

For a child who has demonstrated exceptional academic potential, Independence can provide an appropriate level of challenge, establishing the foundation for success at even the most selective high schools and colleges.

For a student who may be in a school setting that is not meeting his or her academic, social, or emotional needs, the personalized focus and supportive faculty at Independence often offer the best solution.

For parents and students who are looking for a strong community feel and a welcoming environment, The Independence School's culture of respect, responsibility, and integrity is recognized and valued.
