For 70 years, Indian Springs School has built its reputation on a set of key principles and values. These include our belief in Learning through Living, our respect for individuality and independent thought, our ethic of participatory citizenship, and our belief in fostering creativity.
Our mission embodies these values, and our faculty, staff, and students live them. We welcome you to join us in becoming a part of sharing and furthering your education and these goals.
At Indian Springs School, we believe in individualizing the educational experience. This allows students to construct their own unique, rigorous curriculum and to learn to explore their passions.
Our graduates may attend the most prestigious colleges around the country and across the world, but our approach to academics means that they discover something even more valuable—how to grow as a scholar, an individual, and a citizen.
Set on 350 idyllic acres, Indian Springs School is a resource as much as a retreat. Our Fertile Minds Learning Garden and top-quality sports facilities help feed the body. Our sustainably designed facilities help feed the mind.
Emphasizing the quality of student life, our environment embodies the values of community, responsibility, and opportunity. Whether you are on campus for the day or make it your home for the year, this is a space for exploration, education, and engagement.
Louis “Doc” Armstrong, Springs’ founding director, suggested that our important work is “to bridge the gap between what is and what might be” in the ways we learn, think, act, and participate in the wider world. This work is undergirded and extended by the generosity of all who share our mission.
Every gift makes a difference. Regardless of your age or situation, we have a means of giving to the school that suits your circumstances. Our Advancement staff stands ready to help.
