At Indian Springs, educational excellence starts with a culture of respect.
From the earliest writings that brought our school into being, we have referred to ourselves as the “school community,” conspicuously linking teachers and students into a passionate and welcoming academic village. We celebrate Learning through Living and seek to instill in students a lifelong love of learning and creativity, a sense of integrity and moral courage, and an ethic of participatory citizenship with respect for individuality and independent thought.
As members of a vibrant boarding community in Alabama where nearly half of the faculty live on campus, our students and teachers can continue inspired conversations beyond the classroom. Because our Student Government is set up like a town council, run by students with the guidance and support of the faculty and administration, our students build on these important relationships as they practice balancing freedom and responsibility in community life.
Bonds created at Indian Springs among boarding and day students and students and teachers often last a lifetime. In and outside the classroom, we inspire our students to reach their potential by learning to think creatively, ask meaningful questions, make honorable choices, learn from mistakes, respect one another, and participate in their world. We invite you to explore the six key relationships our faculty identified at the heart of good teaching.
